Lin Felton, known to many as his graff artist alter ego QUIK, played an integral role in New York City’s subway art renaissance. Painting trains through the ’70’s and well into the ‘80’s, he would garner all-city acclaim by relentlessly attacking NYC’s famed rapid transit system with thousands of pieces, throwups and top-to-bottoms; his name enjoying near constant circulation on tracks around the five boroughs for the better part of a decade. While bombing in an era of subway art legends, QUIK would carve out his very own piece of history and subsequently catapult himself into a lifelong career as an accomplished painter.
In the New-York Times
The French call it le graf or le tag: the style of urban artwork that was born nearly four decades ago on New York City subways and brick walls, influencing a generation of artists, self-taught and otherwise, across the world.
Lin Felton, aka Quik, was raised in the Queens. As a young boy, he’s quick to join the original stars, such as SEEN, next to whom he executes a number of pieces. From early on, he does integrate strong messages in his murals, clearly looking to push some buttons. With the support of his friend FUTURA, who truth be said, doesn’t really give him a choice, he shows his work in the various exhibits of downtown New York’s blooming scene, along with Blade, Seen and Crash. They’re part of "Beyond Words" at the Mudd Club, in 1981 and fixtures of the New York scene that also includes Jenny Holzer, Harin, Basquiat, etc
