I am Kyle “RISE” Irving, and I am a Detroit artist. 

 

The finished product is not the only story told by my work.

 

The layers of ink and paint build upon one other to create an in-depth image with a sense of movement and fluidity.  Each piece embodies bold and bright brush strokes that keep the viewer’s eyes excitedly entranced.

 

I began as a college student using charcoal and pencils, then dove into the world of graffiti and spray paint, and eventually fused all these techniques together into a style that I have dubbed “Hooligan Art”. 

 

As an artist, I do not like to stay stagnant; I try to push, move and constantly evolve. This is how you achieve greatness.

 

Here I am, to RISE above.
