I think Chico was looked upon by other writers as being less important than they were, because he didn’t do trains…I could be wrong, but I don’t recall seeing any Chico pieces on New York’s subways. He did do quite a lot of murals in the city and I have no clue if he’s still active…

Photographing NYC for 25 years, six of them while driving a New York City taxi. Trying very hard to capture the city as life unfolds, meaning I never stage any of my photos! Also I am a close confidant of the immortal Dave Beckerman, (quintessential NYC photographer) and owner of the first photography blog in the known universe.

I talked to him a few years ago when he was doing a mural across the street and he said he was moving to Florida. Although I’m pretty sure his guys still do work under the “Chico” name.
Trevor, Thanks for the update!
