Two original photographs of graffiti artist A-One in New York, 1982

Anthony Clark, widely known by the name A-One, was a founding member of a number of New York street art groups, most notably the "Tag Master Killers," a group which included fellow graffiti artists Ramellzee, Toxic, Delta 2, and Kool Koor. Admired by many contemporary New York underground artists, including Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring, his work was featured in the 1984 Venice Biennale—making him the youngest artist, at 20 years old, to be shown in the Biennale that year. His work was also exhibited in a number of solo exhibitions in the US and Europe. He died unexpectedly at 37, on 2001, from a brain hemorrhage.
