Ghost was born in the Bronx in the mid 1960s and developed his unique formal technique through his involvement in the New York City Subway Graffiti Movement, where he became recognized for his original style and vibrant colour combinations – along with his strong sense of satire. Unlike most others in the movement known for their artistry, he never planned his work out ahead of time, and always worked improvisational. The technique of alteration has continued to inform the artist work throughout his career, and influenced his creation of a distinctive vocabulary of forms. His highly detailed pen and ink graphic drawing style has the spontaneity and risk of calligraphy, and his paintings’ explosions of colour and energetic exteriority are reined in into tightly balanced compositions.
