“Often times when one suffers a great loss or tragedy, their lives become more about the unwraveling of the person that was or ‘what could have been if only.‘ Rarely are these events the backdrop of an incredible story filled with hope and light. Artist Skyler Grey has been transcending boundaries and expectations in the wake of catastrophe for years, catapulting him to the pinnacle of the art world.
And he’s only 16 years old.”
“Around the corner from our office, a middle-aged looking man was slapping stickers with an image of Amy Winehouse up and down the street. After curiously questioning him, we found out that he was actually sticker bombing for his 12-year-old son, the creator of the art, who was currently at an afternoon birthday party. His son is Skyler Grey.”
“As the youngest artist ever to be internationally exhibited, now 16 year-old Los Angeles-based Skyler Grey is a rising star and one of the newest fixtures on the LA street art scene. After the tragic loss of his mother at age 2 and subsequent placement in therapy that involved art and drawing, Grey’s father noticed his son’s incredible artistic interest, talent and creativity. Over the years, with his father’s encouragement and continuous practice on various mediums, Grey has already transformed his talent into an extraordinary career.”
