Yams is a Chicago based artist primarily focused on public murals and paintings on canvas/wood. His process is intuitive, discovering imagery as he creates and destroys portions of his work. With a 20 year background as a graffiti writer, Yams uses spray paint as his primary medium while incorporating techniques based on traditional forms of oil painting. He has practiced both classical and contemporary art while studying painting and printmaking at Virginia Commonwealth University, where he graduated with a BFA in 2005. Over the past 10 years, Yams has acted as a co-curator and participating artist helping to organize numerous murals and exhibitions throughout the city of Chicago. He plans to continue to focus on his studio practice while continuing to spread his unique imagery on walls both locally and internationally.
