‘Txoria means bird.
The nickname was given to me many years ago in my hometown because I always painted birds and things related to them.

The graffiti paradise of 5Pointz has finally reached its extinction, no matter all the efforts made by many for the preservation of this mythic Hall of Fame factory on Long Island. The buildings has since 1993 became a huge canvas for countless graffiti artists where they could paint legally, and now the walls of the factory has been painted white in standby for its imminent demolition.
In 2009 the city ordered out 5Pointz to be closed up due to its structural deficiencies. Since May 2002, Meres has been acting as the deputy of 5Pointz, trying to protest against the decision of elimination. New York now decided to not listen anymore. Rest in peace 5Pointz!
