      I don’t know if anyone on here knows but OILER spent a lot of time on Los Angeles before Miami and he killed it everywhere..in the early to mid 90’s you couldnt go anywhere in L.A without seeing OILER L.O.D tags..I met him in 92 at the Belmont tunnel with DECLINE…he’s a true king and will be forever missed. .ML/R ALWAYS. .P.S. look up 90’a L.A  graff on YouTube you’ll see him on the news bombing a tall ass billboard

    R.I.P. Bernie. Its hard not to get choked up reading all the kind words from those he knew. You are truly missed. I used to chill with Bernie back in the 90’s before college. He was always an outstanding friend and always had your back no matter what the woes. I still remember the times we’d leave Diamontes in SOBE in the wee hours and wreck it until noon the next day. May your passion and your words live on in our hearts and on the walls and trains that you finessed with your touch. Legends never die. I miss you bro!

    Oil was a awesome dude. Everyone knew him for his graffiti but he was a great tattoo artist as well. I still got his portfolio from when we tattooed at myrtle beach together
