Graffiti for Kids, or GFK for short, is a new creative venture I launched in 2017. The premise is simple: I paint an original graffiti canvas bearing the kids name, as a gift from their loving parents/grandparents/aunt/uncle or anyone that loves a certain child enough to give them a gift that the child will cherish; a gift that will grow in value as my career grows, and a gift of cultural creative awareness.
For as long as I can remember I’ve always gotten along with kids. Even when I was a young one myself until this day, even with kids who I don’t share a language with, I seem to always find a way to bond and communicate– either through humor or art. I love the sound of kids’ laughter; it brightens my heart. So, after many years of commissions and commercial creations, I get to finally embark on my personal pet project involving two of my most favorite things in life: kids, and graffiti. This project has me doing my thing– graffiti-ing colorful displays of kids names on canvas by an original NYC pioneer. The children’s first pieces will hopefully grow into a creative collection! The art will be something they can travel to new homes with, as they grow older– A piece of actual NYC history customized just for them. The child will begin to understand what art is, and that will surely open their minds in the future to be open to other forms of art and design.
I have already begun this project, and as you can tell, the kids love my concept! I’m hoping that the adults get what I am creating and inquire about ordering an original custom piece for sons, daughters, nieces, nephews… preferably before they turn 18, because once kids enter adulthood, they begin their new journeys and start to stop being just “kids.”
This is my retirement plan! If you want to be the absolute coolest parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, or just absolutely cool for kids, contact us for more info!
