No one knows the exact number of members within their association, but they are often described as white men in their 20s and early 30s, all of whom are ensuring that their tag is seen worldwide. 

Martha Cooper; a world-famous urban photographer has been tracking the crew’s activity. She wrote: “This very active crew has sprayed the world with an impressive assortment of carefully-planned, well-executed tags, throwies and pieces above and below ground,” says Cooper. “Big Up to 1Up for helping to keep the original outlaw spirit of graffiti alive.”
