PORT MORRIS - A graffiti pioneer is showcasing his skills at an exhibit in Port Morris.

Nicer Nazario is trading in his brick and spackle for frames and canvas. 

The artist formed a popular graffiti collective called TATS CRU over 35 years ago at James Monroe High School. The group is well-known for their loud and colorful murals.

The pin-up inspired paintings in the Naughty but Nicer Collection show a more delicate side to Nazario's craft.

The collection can be seen at WallWorks on Alexander Avenue through March 25.
