Apollo is one of the Olympian deities in classical Greek and Roman religion and Greek and Roman mythology. The national divinity of the Greeks, Apollo has been recognized as a god of archery, music and dance, truth and prophecy, healing and diseases, the Sun and light, poetry, and more. One of the most important and complex of the Greek gods, he is the son of Zeus and Leto, and the twin brother of Artemis, goddess of the hunt. Seen as the most beautiful god and the ideal of the kouros (ephebe, or a beardless, athletic youth), Apollo is considered to be the most Greek of all the gods. Apollo is known in Greek-influenced Etruscan mythology as Apulu. Biography: Jack Graves III is an American artist, born in 1988 in Jacksonville, Florida. He grew up surrounded by inspiration having an art dealer as a father, John Graves Jr., who founded 'The Collector's Exchange' in St. Augustine, FL in 1978, (today Graves International Art). At the age of 5, his family moved away from urban Jacksonville, Florida to rural Somerset, Virginia. There, he grew up in the country attending and graduating from Grymes Memorial School in 2003 winning the Art Departmental award.

Upon high school graduation, he attended school abroad for a year studying art at the University of Newcastle, UK and then back to the United States to finish at Hampden-Sydney College, VA. He would be recognized for his art at both of these colleges.
