Short bio:

Born, raised and ruined in New York. 

Comics and cartoons sparked my interest. 

Graffiti opened up my view of other types of artwork. 

Fine art kept me interested. 

Create a visual language of imagery that has become recognizable to the viewer. 

Throw in music, family and friends... Oh and some more cartoons and you have ChrisRWK
