This is the Art Life of Rapheal Crump. Born and raised in New York, now residing and working out of Dallas Texas, Rapheal has the space and resources to grow his career as an artist. Rapheal grew up raised by parents who were both artists and introduced him to the language before he could even read or write. While in college he co-owned a custom clithing boutique in New Jersey named S.P.I.T. (Styles Portraying Intelligent Trends) Urban Designs which also showcased clothing in multiple Magic Fashion shows in Las Vegas Nevada from 2004-2007. Graduating with a BFA from School of Visual Arts in Manhattan NY in 2007, launched him into his career soon after. Present day Rapheal continues to speak to people through his ever evolving body of art work. He works professionally out of Dallas and has begun showcasing works in shows across the United States as well online. His goal through his art is to help spread knowledge of culture, community and symbolism. His Artwork tells stories about experiences he has had and things he has seen in the streets growing up.
