TRAP is passionate about the quality of his work and his roots as a writer and artist. He cites EASY, JOZ, JA, QUIK, COPE, EWOK, JICK, the TPA crew and a host of other storied writers as influences. Although he can be found on Instagram, TRAP hasn’t been swayed by the internet’s influence on graffiti. After decades of honing his craft, it wasn’t until he badly injured his ankle from falling off a ladder about five years ago that TRAP considered selling his work. “I have shirts, prints and different refurbished items that come up from time to time.” Recently, TRAP did a co-brand with Aardvark, a company that makes portable vaporizers. TRAP happens to be a weed enthusiast, and plans on dropping more cannabis-related projects in the future.
