Just heard that SURE (ATM, HAA, 156), half of the duo “SURE + FAUST”, has been killed while in the line of duty in Afghanistan at the age of 25. If you’ve been around lower Manhattan (or all of New York for that matter) in the last few years, you’ve surely (no pun intended) seen his over saturation of stickers. And these aren’t the (so trendy right now) printed vinyl stickers, these are all hand done with some of the dopest handstyles in the graffiti world. I met him briefly last year (He actually caught me getting up. Classic.). We talked for a minute and exchanged some stickers. Seemed like a genuine cool dude. He’ll definitely be missed. Rest In Peace.
