Video: Bronx New York Graffiti Legend Cope2 Featured On KARMALOOPTV & Vimby Art

Fernando Carlo (also known as Cope2) is a graffiti artist from the South Bronx, New York. He has been writing graffiti since 1978-79, and has gained international credit for his work. Though he is now known worldwide, he didn’t receive recognition in the mainstream graffiti world until the mid-1990s.

Cope2’s cousin “Chico 80” influenced Cope into writing. In 1982 he made his own crew called Kids Destroy and eventually it changed to Kings Destroy after he dubbed himself “King of the 4 Line”.
