A little About AK

“AK ” was a nick name given to Rapheal in high school that originated from “The Art Kid”. Rapheal was born and raised in New York, now resides and works out of Dallas Texas. The move gave him the space and resources to grow his career as a professional artist. His parents are both artists and introduced him to the language before he could even read or write. While in college he co-owned a custom clothing boutique in Passaic, NJ named S.P.I.T. (Styles Portraying Intelligent Trends) Urban Designs which also showcased street wear and the shops custom clothing in the Magic Fashion show that takes place in Las Vegas Nevada. Graduating from School of Visual Arts in Manhattan NY with a B.F.A. in 2007, launched him into his career. The goal of his work has been to reach people through Visual Arts and help educate them about culture and his upbringing.

Working as a Professional Artist

Rapheal was given an opportunity of a lifetime to help start and run the art department of a whole broadcast media network. Working directly with CEO’s, teams of creatives and production groups, he learned the inns and outs of the industry, what it takes to reach clients, gain their interest in product, and get them to invest toward the success of the company. A 11+ year career has given him the experience and confidence as a visual artists to know that, whoever he works with will produce products that people will want and love and have fun doing so. If you want that for your company, Rapheal is the versatile, dependable artist you need.
