About Me

My photo
I am from Chicago one of the most overlooked cities when it comes to graffiti or anything else.I started taking pictures of graffiti in the fall of 05' and instantly got hooked. My goal is to put Chicago on the map to show that not only L.A. and New York have a thriving graffiti scene. One day i plan to turn this hobby into a 9 to 5. I want to show people the many wonders this world has to offer through my photography. I want to expose them to the things they turn a blind eye to on a daily basis to make them realize that there is more to the world then the cubicle that surrounds them.

  2. To infer that i am a gang banger is pretty ignorant on your part. I am a person who works and also goes to school to better myself. Photography is a hobby of mine and i document the beauty of art whether its on a wall or in a gallery.


    That is a common misconception of graffiti art!

    Gang graffiti is not the same thing as graffiti. Gangbangers tag your houses and claim your neighborhoods as their sets the inflict fear in to people and they take the lives of innocent people fighting over something that was never theirs to begin with. They also fill our streets with drugs and guns.

    Graffiti artist do nothing more then add color to a dull surface and have nothing to gain from it. I agree not all of it is good, but the ones that are add a splash of color to a forgotten space that no one cares about.

    Often people are afraid of what they dont understand.

    If you love Chicago so much you would not elect people such as Daley to take your last bit of privacy away and head this city to a substantial debt with all this jargon about the Olympics, If you loved Chicago for what it is you should stop gentrification of our great neighborhoods and stop the building of cookie cutter housing destroying Chicago's beautiful architecture. Chicago is not only Lincoln Park, Wicker Park, or Lakeview its also Englewood, Uptown, and Austin.

    Get your facts straight the next time you want to comment on something you do not understand
