Coler is Added to the Roster
Erik 'Coler' Del Rio was born on June 24th,1978 in Houston. He developed an interest in art at the tender age of 5, while drawing and painting in his elementary school classes. Coler's artistic endeavors soon began to focus more on graffiti after spying pieces in his skate magazines. He first tried his hand at graffiti when he was just twelve years old, and it was all over after that! After 18 years of painting, he is still considered to be one of the originators and innovators in Houston's graffiti scene. Coler is one of the most respected writers you'll find. His 10 years of tattooing have also helped hone his artistic skill. Graffiti and tattooing have worked harmoniously for Coler to help create a style that is untouched and unmistakably his own.
