Mouse Rawk, or MR, was born in Los Angeles, California in 1987 into a family of artists. His early influences stem from his father who was an architect/artist and mother who was a watercolorist. He has been creating and studying art independently since childhood. Having spent some of his early years living in Botswana, Africa, the culture and heritage heavily influenced his artistry. At age 12, a close friend Chase Early introduced him to graffiti art and he has been hooked ever since. MR has always been inspired by creative expression in the public eye and feels it plays an important role in every community. His work combines an urban style with abstract compositions often consisting of vibrant colors with a balance of line work. Daring to disturb the universe, his work serves as a presentation rather than an interpretation. MR’s mediums consist of spray paint, acrylics, watercolors, pen, and ink. He is constantly exploring new ideas and techniques while pushing the artistic envelope. Some of his other influences are friends, mid-century modernism, nature, comic books, and music. He currently resides in Thousand Oaks, California.
