This week Freeway Editions is taking a look at the work of SoCal artist CANTSTOPGOODBOY. This guy has been on a roll making paintings for exhibitions and art fairs as well as collaborating with tons of top brands and musicians. Check out his work and stay tuned for more from this artist.
From the artist's bio: "Although only 22 years old, CANTSTOPGOODBOY, is quickly making his mark in the emerging world of street art. A native of Southern California, he was introduced to the world of art at an early age by his mother, a professional artist. His talents were recognized early but school would not prove to be the environment in which he would flourish. In high school, CANTSTOPGOODBOY was discouraged by a short-sighted art teacher, resulting in a four year hiatus.
With no formal training, he rediscovered his love for art during his freshman year of college where he became inspired both by the prominence of street art and by an art professor who quickly recognized his abilities. After one semester he transferred to the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he took general studies classes while his art was sidelined as a hobby. It only took one semester at Boulder for CANTSTOPGOODBOY to realize that creating art, and not academics, is his true passion.
CANTSTOPGOODBOY is a self-taught Malibu based Contemporary Artist / Muralist. With a meticulous attention to detail, utilizing mixed media (vintage comics) and various other techniques, his work has not gone unnoticed. Collaborations with companies such as Sony, Warner Bros., Atlantic Records, Coachella Music Festival, Absolut Vodka, Converse and TOMS Shoes, Sol Republic and The Audience to name a few, shows you clearly CANTSTOPGOODBOY."
