Hektad is a New York City graffiti pioneer. In 1982, at the age of 12, the Bronx native set out to compete with veteran bombers such as Mitch 77 and Chris 217. After an intense 12 year campaign on New York’s streets and transit system, Hektad took a well deserved break to focus on his family.
In 2013, he returned with a vengeance. After jumping into what many consider a cluttered and undefined street art scene, Hektad clearly took the lead with his whimsical “Love Drunk” hearts and humorous anecdotes. Currently, Hek is experimenting with many new mediums tinged with traditional graffiti. With this current collection of pieces, it is evident that Hektad is well on his way to securing a permanent spot in the annals of New York street art history.
