Biography / Cost

Once described as probably the worst graffiti vandal in the history of New York City, Adam Cost and his partner Revs are famous since the early 1990s for wheat pasting their messages in public such as on traffic signs. Adam’s works are featured as a part of the opening of the URBAN NATION Museum in 2017.

Graffiti artist Cost started in the early 1990s to wheat paste his tags and obscure messages in bold black ink on public places. In the mid-90s, his posters included a phone number. When called by curious people who want to know more about the intention, a woman’s voice satirized their issue by not giving answers, but questioning back. Later Cost and Revs collaborated on large roller pieces on walls, billboards or subway embankments. In 2010 Cost released a limited collection of t-shirts with fashion brand Supreme and came back to the streets of New York City wheat pasting stickers, also in collaboration with Space Invader.
