Born in Chicago, Charles studied at the International Academy of Merchandise and Design in Commercial Arts, but is mostly self-taught.  His works expand in various mediums, such as oil, acrylic, graphite, industrial paint, coffee. “anything I get my hands on to manifest a work.”


 


His work inspires youth to be the truth of who they are.  This mural is an example of his school projects:
