Transitioning from a graduate at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD)  in May 2008,  to being a working artist, is a very challenging yet rewarding journey. In these past three years I have utilized my time effectively, hustling while working my way into the lowbrow/new contemporary artist scene. I am a part of artist collective, ‘Lifted Lab’  www.liftedlab.com,  and have booked well attended shows in Brooklyn, Denver, Knoxville, Charlotte and more.

I was recently invited to do a collaborative show with the talented Amara Munoz (http://amarapordios.blogspot.com/) in Uppsala, Sweden  in December 2011, @ Gallery Diana gallery : http://www.galleridiana.com/ . This will be my first international show, and a key goal of mine achieved. The opportunity offered is a rewarding prospect, in light of my extensive work and diligence while pursuing my dream to be a full time artist against so many odds.

thanks to an extreme combination of raw talent and work ethic, infamous JeanClaude has made quite an impact on the art community in a relatively short amount of time.  with a unique style and positive perspective, his work embodies a combination of "future primitive" elements reminiscent of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics and modern street art.  his art often explores universal imagery and themes including pyramids, masks, thought bubbles, love, hate, hustle, grind, growth, balance, power, and more.  i'm not surprised to hear that his talent has recently spread to be appreciated by an international audience.  stay on the lookout for this guy-- after all, he is infamous.

I felt a connection to Infamous JeanClaude's art since the first small glimpse I had of it on a business card. After seeing the work in person, it was obvious his art has a distinctive style and message. After working closely with this artist for the past three years, I believe in what he does more each day. His art brings a wide variety of audiences together because he helps identify human Consciousness in a modern world. Infamous JeanClaude's passion and incite is inspiring- in his work and in his presence. I am proud to be a part of Lifted Lab Creative Collective with him, and have been anticipating his success in other countries since the beginning. This collaborative show at Gallery Diana in Sweden is sure to be a crucial platform in his life-long career as an international illustrator, painter, graphic designer, and visual motivator for this generation.

Infamous Jean-Claude creates art that makes a difference. He has a gift and he uses it to inspire others and to initiate positive change. He is the perfect role model to show anyone that hard work and a positive attitude mixed with a strong character can lead someone to achieve whatever dream they can imagine. Everyone should support him and his art because everything he does can only improve those who come in contact with him and his art. He is one of the most outstanding individuals that i know.
