The first in a series of “Blackbook Pieces and Tags” features the work of veteran writer  Louie Gasparro aka KR.ONE. Over 30 years ago, KR.ONE was hitting the trains; these days he continues to make his mark on a range of legal surfaces from black books to canvasses to huge buses. His work will be featured in the upcoming Flip the Script Book Release and Art Show at Reed Space at 151 Orchard Street on April 4 and in a solo exhibit at 5Pointz on Saturday, May 11.
