Born and raised in Los Angeles, Charlie began his career as a graffiti artist working in a variety of styles and mediums, including colorful mixed-media paintings, large-scale murals, and bold design graphics.

While attending Otis College of Art and Design, Charlie expanded his work to include letters and geometric shapes, which formed the basis of his abstract paintings.

Charlie’s use of spray paint and vibrant colors embody the energy of L.A. along with the allure of Southern California. His distinctive style has gained international recognition.
