Fernando Carlo (known as Cope2) (South Bronx, New York) is a graffiti artist from the Kingsbridge. Though he is known worldwide, he didn't receive recognition in the graffiti world until the mid 1990's. He has been painting since 1978, and has gained international credit for his work. He and his crew "Kings Destroy" (formerly "Kids Destroy," or simply KD) are the main focus of the graffiti movie "Kings Destroy". Cope2 has been one of the main targets of the New York City Vandal Squad and has been arrested for vandalism, theft and drug charges. The arrest followed the release of a 272 page book of his work titled "Cope 2: True Legend" Cope2 started writing graffiti in the late 70's , his cousin Chico 80 introduced Cope into writing and it ran in the family. He made his own crew called Kids Destroy and eventually it changed to Kings Destroy after he dubbed himself king of the 4 line.
