Meet the Agents
Born (literally) attached at the hip, abused and belittled in high school, this duo made a pact to fight injustice. Originally from England, they brought a whole new meaning to “double agent” by taking on assignments to take down organized crime in the States.

In the winter of 1981, a scrawny, Brooklyn-born twelve-year-old kid by the name of Michael McLeer hung from the beam of an elevated B train. Spray can in hand, sneaker against steel, he felt spraypaint adorn the surface of an MTA train car for the first time. When he wrote the name KAVES, he penned the beginning of a folklore that spanned New York City's restless, crumbling, hip-hop fueled 1980s and 90s.
Over the years, Kaves, a "Brooklyn boy who makes good", took his paintings from traincars to museums and galleries. He took hip-hop from the crackle of his boom box radio into the unwelcome lap of the neighborhood he loved, creating the pioneering rap/punk-rock group Lordz of Brooklyn. He has designed exclusive visuals for many major brands, including Audemars Piguet, Aston Martin, Jaguar, NIKE, Rockstar Games, WWE, and Adidas, as well as for world-renowned artists such as the Beastie Boys and Metallica. Kaves is also known for his tattoo work, acting, and filmmaking endeavors.
Throughout his career, Kaves has been a trailblazer in the graffiti, music, and fine art scenes. He aims to continue this tradition by bringing The Family Mooks to the blockchain, paving the way for artists to branch into the NFT space.
