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.
