If I am not mistaken, Mr. Tataryn is the only artist of those featured whom I have met. 
He was a member of a Toronto group I refer to in a short story as "The Neon Bandits", but certainly they were not actually bandits. They did stretch the law somewhat by setting up displays without permission of the owners of the site. They disassembled everything the next day and cleaned it all up. 

But my imagination said "bandits", and so it was. 
He had two compatriots in neon, Alfred and Michael, I think...
