As a graffiti writer, Kleos joined his first graffiti crew in 1997 in Massachusetts. He was invited to join the “Action Crew”, with members painting in Philly, Boston, and NYC. The Action Crew taught Kleos the initial methods, strategies, and esthetics of East Coast graffiti. Later on, Kleos was actively painting in LA before coming to Asia. During his constant travels in between Europe and Taiwan, Kleos was asked to become an honorary member of HVK in Madrid. This happened in 2009, and since becoming an honorary member Kleos has proven himself worthy of continuing the tradition of proficiency that is known from this highly esteemed Spanish crew. (HVK stands for Horror Vacui Kombo). On the side Kleos has been continuing his work in illustration, currently working as a freelance illustrator.
