KOLORSTORM: THE ART OF LOUIE "KR.ONE" GASPARRO. Louie Gasparro and Sacha Jenkins. Schiffer Publishing Ltd., Atglen, 2016. 144 pp. with 427 ills. (425 col.). 31 x 24 cm. LC 2016-943056 ISBN 9780764351853 In English.
Publisher's description: NYC graffiti art, heavy metal, comic books, and fantasy art intersect here in Louie "KR.ONE" Gasparro's visual autobiography. This legendary Queens artist-drummer weaves these powerful influences into a medium he calls "Graffantasy," creating tags, wall pieces, paintings and illustrations, model trains, jackets, and more. Gaze at this modern Renaissance man's work from 1977 to the present, and trace his evolution from his adolescent days watching bombed subway cars whirring by in a KOLORSTORM, to the underground period tagging trains and evading cops, to his legal works and whole-school buses. Starting with a scrapbook-like photo collection from Louie's youth and his other career as drummer of several heavy metal bands, the book moves on with elaborate sketches from the artist's blackbooks, and colorful concert posters and album covers. Through a stunning array of styles and techniques, witness KR.ONE's transformation from restless punk to major decorative artist and abstract painter.
