Born and raised in Queens, NY, Stae2 has emerged as a leading aerosol artist known for his stylized lettering and versatility. His informal apprenticeship in the 1990s with classic New York City graffiti artists helped develop his lettering, aerosol paint techniques and desire to discover various surfaces to apply his work. His graphic design background has helped refine and bring his work together without losing its street edge. Stae2’s work can be seen across much of the United States, and his work has also sent him abroad to Greece, Ireland, Canada, Spain, Mexico and Tahiti to leave his signature mark. Stae2’s aerosol work has been published and featured in The Graffiti Exchange, Broken Windows NY, Graffiti NY and Graffiti Burners. His artwork has been commissioned by Sprite, Yoo-Hoo, Google, GE, Vornado Properties and Kraft Foods to name a few.
