About

Amar's piece is oil paint on canvas. His work has been featured in Buzzfeed and Complex Magazine amongst other publications. Amar grew up about 90 minutes north of London in a small town called Leamington Spa. Early on, he began to gain interest in drawing and would recreate comic book covers in his sketchbook. Over time, the sketchbook doodles morphed into a desire to paint anything and everything around him. At this point, he still didn’t know what he wanted to do, but he knew that he wanted to create. And as a quiet, often shy kid, Amar quickly learned that his creative interests were a great way to express himself and pay homage to his inspirations. One of those inspirations was Hip-Hop. Drawn to the biographical elements in the lyrics and the sampled beats, he felt it made for the perfect soundtrack to his life and began painting his favorite Hip-Hop artists. He started to get serious about painting in his early twenties. For several years, he experimented with different mediums ranging from water colors, pencil, chalk, acrylic, and aerosol. Eventually, he experimented with oil and instantly loved how the more traditional style of paint worked for him. And with his first big collection, The Masters, featuring famous Hip-Hop artists dressed as 17th century aristocrats, the traditional aesthetic of oil paint was the perfect match. In 2014, Amar made the move across the Atlantic to New York, the birthplace of Hip-Hop to continue his career in a setting that lives and breathes the inspiration for his works. Four years later, he currently resides in Bushwick and continues to paint what he loves.
