TATS CRU, Inc. is a group of Bronx-based professional muralists whose work in aerosol, has changed the perception of graffiti as art. Twenty-four years ago, three teenagers began their artistic careers by creating subway graffiti. What began as a recognition tactic has evolved into a powerful, expressive style that has brought TATS CRU to the forefront of mural art. TATS CRU has spearheaded the battle to change people’s perception of graffiti art. Proof of their success and the acceptance of graffiti as an art form has been their work for the Smithsonian’s Institute 35th Annual Folklife Festival, where TATS CRU was chosen to represent New York City muralists. TATS CRU’s work now adorns several NYC public schools and hospitals. In addition to their work reaching new heights, TATS CRU has also lectured at Hunter College, M.I.T., University of Massachusetts, Cortlandt University, Brooks School and many community-based organizations. TATS CRU’s work has been featured in The New York Times, New York Magazine, USA Today, Vibe, Associated Press, The New York Daily News, Chicago Tribune, Rap Pages, Asbury Park Press, El Diario, Latina, The Source, Stress, Mass Appeal and Details. Their art has been included in books such as Spraycan Art, [Thames and Hudson, Inc. 1987]. The Art of Getting Over [St. Martin’s Press 1999] and R.I.P. NYC Memorial Wall Art [Henry Holt & Co. 1994] for which a TATS CRU mural was chosen for the book’s cover. Style Writing from the Underground [Art Book INTL. LTD. 1998]. TATS CRU currently employs several full-time artists as well as several freelance artists throughout the United States.
