Pose 2 is a Graffiti Writer; his evolutionary style is the driving force and inspiration that keeps him seeking new aspects of himself. His paintings have evolved and merged the elements from hardcore street alphabets and nature’s elegant beauty to form an ‘abstract organic union.’ “My present style represents the exploration of my interpersonal growth and interaction with nature.”

Daniel (Pose 2) Hopkins was born in the Bronx and raised in Yonkers, New York. He is a graduate of Brockport University with BA degree in Business and a Minor in Fine Art. He has painted murals and exhibited his work in Dubai, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Paris, Osaka, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, Numerous books, feature films, magazines, and videos highlight the insightful thoughts Pose 2 values and shares about “Graffiti as an Art Form” and why its so important in this present moment in history.
