Legend has it that Ta55o’s career started with some scrawlings on his grandmother’s kitchen table. Every year he would sign and date the underside of the table and over the years would watch as the style and flow changed. Growing up in divided Berlin he was forced to compete with the hordes of other artists painting political messages on the Wall, but his photo-realist style led him to become one of the most photographed graffiti artists in the world.
