Raised in the greater Philadelphia area, Jimmy is an American graffiti writer who began painting in the early 2000s. Today, with over a decade of work under his belt, he has solidified himself as a nationally recognized practitioner of the art.
Today, his work is predominantly in aerosol and oil paint, which always includes dynamic lettering, bold colors, layering techniques, and dedication to cleanliness. He continues to test the boundaries of bold typographic art and although each piece is much different from the next, they are instantly recognizable as his own.
While demand increases and commissioned work grows, Jimmy is taking on larger commercial projects that allow him to bring his work into the mainstream. From massive neighborhood landmarks in Philadelphia to the fine detail of canvas letter studies, his portfolio is a reflection of his prolific graffiti career and his passion for typography.
