“I was just curious about the fact that everyone is doing the same kind of art and felt the need to start doing art differently. I got on the internet to research on ways that my art could be exceptional from others. Typography is what has already been out there. I simply took from what is already existing and coined my own style. For about two years now, I have been consistently doing it, and improving on it. My text art craft has improved and more is becoming more accepted by people.”
He also expressed his most exciting part of being a Typography artist in the interview. He said, “One of the most exciting part so far for me is the encouragement, and good comments I have received. Also, the social media support with people sharing my work and making other people see it, makes me so excited and encourages me to do more.”
