Aerosol Warfare was first established by Mario Enrique Figueroa, Jr. also known as GONZO247 and MERGE360 of UPC, Underground Productions in 1990. While out on the streets getting a rush from their chosen artform, GONZO and MERGE documented. From these mini live-action documentaries, Aerosol Warfare, the video magazine was born. Spray painting with one artist flourished into painting with several.
