Rafael Colon is a former US Marine and self taught artist born in Puerto Rico and raised in the Bronx.
Inspired by history as told to him by his Chinese grandfather, his travels with the Marines and a long standing interest in the discipline and detailed work of Asian artists. Bringing this style into the modern era, Colon creates wood-burned, hand-painted images on skateboard decks as well as traditional watercolor pieces. Each skateboard deck features iconic imagery that is hand etched and painted, taking street art to new levels.
Rafael launched his first New York City solo exhibition in January of 2016. This is his second solo show at Art on A Gallery, and showing his newer amazing pieces.
