Describe your work; what themes and concepts does your work generally revolve around?

“It’s mainly graffiti based, artsy or sometimes a combination of the both. I try to do be in my own lane, because people aren’t interested in people that follow trends. So, my themes and concept you can say it’s “trendsetting.”
