A monument first generation graffiti artist, Kool Koor is best known for his space-age inspired works that range from surreal scenes to intricate abstractions. Born Charles Hargrove, the artist began his career in the late 1970’s on the subway trains and throughout the urban landscape of New York City while attending the Art and Design School in Manhattan. In doing so, the artist helped bring the South Bronx style to downtown Manhattan, at venues such as Fashion Mod, and transform the graffiti style away from just urban scrawl into an innovative movement in the artistic scene. Along with friends and fellow artists Rammellzee, Crash, and Futura, Kool Koor stands at the basis of the New York graffiti movement. Kool Koor now lives and works in Brussels, Belgium.
