Beginning in the late 70s, Cope2 (aka Carlo Fernando) is considered one of the masters of the "throw up," or "throwie," which gained its name for being a graffiti tag quickly thrown onto a wall or subway car. Cope2 has evolved as an artist over the decades, taking cues from Jackson Pollock, showing that Action Painting is prevalent in both graffiti and Abstract Expressionism. His signature style has been showcased in countless galleries as well as magazines such as Time and Business Week.
