Artist Portfolio Magazine – 2017 Q4 Art Competition
I am Kyle “RISE” Irving, and I am a Detroit artist.
The finished product is not the only story told by my work. It starts with a sketch, to the layers, and builds an image from blank canvas to the final piece hanging on the wall. Each one of my pieces tells a story unto itself.
Over the years, I have evolved from a student using charcoal and pencils, to diving into the world of graffiti and spray paint, and eventually fusing all these techniques together into a style that I have dubbed “Hooligan Art”. I do not like to stay stagnant; I push, move and constantly evolve as a person and as an artist. This is how you become great.
Here I am, to RISE above.
