Douglas Swankler


I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA then moved to Los Angeles to study fashion. My early art influence was a friend and street artist, KHno7 - she was a badass artist who used stencils and spray paint tagging the streets of LA. I studied art and fashion history in school, but held street art in a high regard.
My art began 4 years ago; on a whim- I took spray paint and cardboard to my sisters house. I was looking for something fun to do with my nieces and nephew. Cut out cardboard squares and we “tagged” them.
We created Art, “graffiti art” it was simple and beautiful.
