A native to Hollywood, California, Phobik is a self-taught artist who started out drawing his original comic book style character illustrations drawing from his personal experiences in Los Angeles. His artistic skillsets span from graphic novel illustrations and fine art, to murals and interior design.
Showcased in galleries throughout the world, Phobik also has his murals in LA archived by the Google Street Art Project, including being awarded recognition by the city of Los Angeles. In addition to his private collectors, the artist behind “Quarantoons” has also been previously commissioned by LA Live, Gibson Guitars, The Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, TJ Martell Foundation, WePlay Co., MTV, and the Los Angeles Public Library. However, the project he is most proud of is with his work with Smile South Central – a Non-Profit community project that focuses on beautifying the streets of South Central via murals that help provide a positive communal atmosphere.
