Kool Koor /   Charles Hargrove

United States 1963 

Born as Charles Hargrove in 1963, this artist grew up surrounded by such masters as A-One and Toxic who lived in the same neighborhood in the South Bronx. Hargrove attended the Art and Design School in Midtown, a fairly distant location that required him to travel every day on his commute to and from school, a route that gained him an access to the world of subway trains. In that period, the artist began his street career, writing tags on the subway trains and throughout the urban landscape. And just like that, Kool Koor was born. Charles and his fellow artists were some of the first to completely diverge from “classic” graffiti art, pushing the boundaries of their work to transform urban scrawl into something completely innovative in the artistic scene. Through collaborative and individual works on the trains, Kool Koor brought the South Bronx style to downtown Manhattan at venues such as Fashion Moda, the first gallery that will focus on the Bronx street artists.
