Born in Washington and raised under the Palmetto Moon of South Carolina. I take pride In my state and my country. My art reflects my interests at any given time but keeps to a familiar Industrial polluted style.
I dabble in graphic design and computer rendering. A Once savvy 3D modeler now turned thrift store supervisor, my dream of being a success in art is calling me. I have turned back to my love of painting and illustration for a final throw down to make a successful career of it. - See more at: http://www.kurtiswhitehead.com/about-the-artist/#sthash.QsdAhiGC.dpuf
