Multimedia artist inspired by roaming the streets of Chicago, highlighting the things that I see and unique characters I come across. Since exploring the paint world for the last five years I’ve really grown a passion for live art. Having an audience to vibe with really helps to express my work. By maintaining an organic flow I lean towards not using reference photos. Just go with the flow, it’s always a new experience!
