VEN is among the handful of writers who were responsible for upholding an artistic presence on the New York City subway system during the mid to late 1980s. He wrote during the decline of the movement with a level of commitment matched by few. He hit BMTs and INDs with IRT caliber burners. VEN was also a key player in the creation of the last whole subway train (10 Cars).He was also an early participant in the "Clean Train" Movement.
