ABOUT THE ARTIST

Dylan is an artist and graphic designer from Oklahoma City who enjoys unity with his local art community and continually works to connect with other people from all artistic walks through collaboration and volunteer work. With an increasing focus on public art, Dylan has recently worked on multiple mural projects in Oklahoma City and around the state, including being co-creator of the Plaza Walls project. With an urban contemporary style, Dylan’s art holds illustrative qualities when rendering subject matter which is dreamlike and representational in nature.
