In the heart of the South Bronx in the late 80’s a progressive prismatic artist, known by all as Clark (originally Clark Kent), formed the crew Fly I.D. his escapades with graff lead him to the streets along the New York city transit lines; the 2 and 5 lines.
After over a decade of illegal artwork he became more involved in the generally unaccepted (in the graffiti world) legal side of the graff art form. As time went on he and his crew realized that their artwork was having a profound positive effect in the communities where they painted. From that point, with the support of the communities, Clark decided that he was going to show Fly ID’s artistic ability through the medium of aerosol spray paint with large participation in positive and educational art.
Themes included AIDS awareness, non-violence, anti-drug abuse, and pro-family murals. Clark hopes to make a difference in the lives of everyone who receives the message of Fly I.D.’s work.
