Colorful graffiti art on canvas with a pop-art approach.
Akeemraheem is it Bay Area native graffiti artist with ties to Detroit Michigan. From spray painting graffiti-art on walls to graffiti-inspired art on canvas, Akeem’s style and humor translates well into his art and life. This is art that you normally see on walls and trains, that’s been customized for your home.
Growing up immersed in American urban culture, and an avid fan of hip hop music and art, he began drawing in sketch books and doing graffiti art around the Bay Area with friends and fellow artists. He was heavily influenced by graffiti artist like Cieve from the 640 crew and Dream from TDK. Art for art’s sake is the spirit that keeps him creating.
After college, Akeemraheem began the redundant life of going to work and coming home; rinse and repeat. That was when he realized he needed a creative outlet that nourishes the spirit. So he went with the medium most familiar: spray paint.
His artwork is meant ot be fun and bright in a world full of solemn and serious surroundings. He wanted the unique quirkiness of his art to inspire creativity and you in his fans and supporters.
