RASHAD NELSON

 

  

FIRST SOLO EXHIBITION! 

 

 

 

 

Rashad Nelson was born in 1991 in Boston Massachusetts. He grew up in Roslindale with his grandparents, who nurtured his artistic development. Inspired by his grandfather’s collection, Rashad began building model cars at

an early age. The minute details, from the chrome handles to the treads in the tires, fixated him. He translated his concepts of cars into sketches with pencil and paper.

 

During his teenage years, Rashad's interest in art drew him into the emerging graffiti and street art world. He moved around the city at night, writing his tag name on walls, street signs, and utility poles.

 

Around this time Rashad was introduced to Artists for Humanity, where he began to learn painting and refine his artistic technique.

 

In recent years, Rashad’s work has been exhibited at many streetwear bou-tiques including Bodega, BAU/Business as Usual, and Jiberish. His experience “graffiti bombing” plays heavily in his abstract style.

 

Rashad continues to explore his original artistic outlet of sketching. His love

for the arts extends to music and fashion.

 

OPENING RECEPTION: Monday, September 21 from 5pm to 8pm 

Artists For Humanity’s gallery is open weekdays from 12pm to 6pm for visitors to view and purchase works.  For additional information, please call Brenda at
