Here's a little news about Rime from the Mad Style Kings. For those who don't know...
Known for versatile, adventurous letter-style, Rime (Jersey Joe) combines vivid colors, precise lines, and bold concepts to produce work that stands in a class of its own. Simply put, Rime’s work has character.
A natural artist, Joe began painting graffiti during 1991 in Staten Island, and spent the next years developing his talent in different areas of New York City and New Jersey. By 2003, Joe traveled to Europe and earned international recognition under the handles “Rime” and “Jersey Joe.” Returning to the United States, Joe began to produce work for gallery shows, simultaneously pursuing graffiti and fine art.
Joe relocated to Los Angeles in late 2005, and found work teaching graffiti art to inner-city kids at Los Angeles public schools. Within the next year, Joe joined MSK (a Los Angeles based graffiti crew) and a collective of artists known as The Seventh Letter.
To date, Joe has painted 18 cities within the United States and 22 cities in 13 countries internationally. Aside from being featured in numerous books, magazines, and videos, many of Joe’s works are still exhibited in original form for public viewing.
