So tell us a little bit about yourself?

– I’m an NYC native, obsessed with the street art game worldwide. I’ve only been painting seriously for the past year. I host and curate shows all over NYC. Above all I love to paint live and I do it at least once a month.

What inspired you to start in doing artwork?

– I’ve always been an artist, since I was young. I didnt do very well in high school and art was my way into college. From there I had a teacher who got me interested in cubism. I also got into graphic design and down the road the two became one.

Is there anything that sets you differently from others out there?

– I had a 4 year hiatus where I spent a lot of time refining my sketches, which developed into the style I’m known for today.

Were there any hard challenges you had to face in the industry?

– The NYC art scene is hard to break into, so I started putting my own shows together. I still have many challenges ahead in my career but I’ve never run into a challenge I couldnt overcome.

What ways have you found was the best way to promote yourself?

– Instagram is number one. (@IncarceratedJerkfaces)

What would be your craziest designs you’ve done?

– The rolling stones tongue with a razor and the big Mickey Mouse piece I did recently (‘The Year of the jerk’)

Are there any goals that you would like to achieve?

– Everything. I spread myself too thin sometimes but it all works out.

What can we expect from you in the future?

– A global takeover. Planet Jerk.

What do you think of FKN Famous & how did you hear about us?

– Instagram. FKN Famous is very well put together, I see a bright future for FKN Famous

Any last shout outs?

– Shout out to my favorite artist in the scene right now Nosego and my guy VapDee who keeps opening doors for me. Much Love. and my babaz.
