ABOUT THE FEATURED ARTIST:
In his own words:
I am a 23 year old abstract expressionist artist, born and raised in Rockville, Maryland. Growing up, I never really knew what I wanted to do with my life. I hated school, sucked at sports and never really had any hobbies (besides doodling on all over my schoolwork). As time went on, I gave my art more focus, I attempted different styles and new platforms to express myself. I was always very fond of graffiti and tagging, but I was always too scared to actually do it. The fear of getting caught drove me to draw more, but under a somewhat alias or tag. I managed to come up with dieGLO, and in all honesty I got it from Chief Keef’s phrase “GLO UP“. – dieGLO
