About

“hierograff”

I’m a self-taught painter using primarily acrylics in multiple forms (spray, marker, tube) on canvas. My love for hip-hop in the late 70’s and early 80’s was complemented by my love for graffiti. Years of imitating what I saw in movies (“Wild Style”), music videos and concerts, and neighborhoods (dad lived in Harlem for a while) led to a style I dubbed Hierograff. Hierograff is the convergence of influences from ancient tribal markings, most popularly represented by Egyptian hieroglyphs, and modern-day graffiti. My pieces often display a combination of icons, abstract lines, and my own signature markings.
