ABOUT SKYLER GREY
A 17-year old street art sensation, Skyler Grey has been called “The Fresh Prince of Street Art”. He began painting when he was 10 years old, and had his first commissioned work aged 13. Rearranging pop cultural icons with bursts of vivid color, Grey’s works have been acquired by Hip-Hop artist The Game and pop singer Ashlee Simpson. Grey’s most widely-circulated work, “Queen Amy” (appropriating late singer Amy Winehouse as the Queen Elizabeth II), has appeared in galleries and private viewings worldwide. In 2014, he was honored by McDonald’s at the 11th Annual 365 Black Awards, which recognizes outstanding African Americans aiding their home communities. His work has been exhibited at venues in London, Vancouver, Miami, Los Angeles, and Dubai. He was featured in the 2017 edition of Forbes Magazine’s 30 Under 30 Art and Style. Grey lives and works in Los Angeles.
