ABOUT THE ARTIST

Dylan currently works as a graphic designer and co-owner at DNA Galleries, co-curator and developer of the Plaza Walls project and continues to pursue his personal and public art career. Throughout his schooling Dylan built his creative talents in many art related studies that led to his BFA in Graphic Design obtained with honors in 2006.

With a drive for supporting emerging artists he has built a close relationship with his local arts community and over the past decade has begun to pursue national and international artistic endeavors. His artwork has been shown various exhibits throughout the country and traveled overseas for a solo exhibition in Hannover, Germany.

With an urban contemporary style, Dylan’s art holds illustrative qualities when rendering subject matter which is dreamlike and representational in nature.
