Born and raised in Miami, Quake jumped headfirst into graffiti in the mid 90’s, inspired as a youngster by the illegal masterpieces in his neighborhood. Although it landed him in legal trouble multiple times as a youngster, he was eventually able to focus that energy into a BFA degree from the University of Miami, and shortly thereafter formed his own creative design and mural company, Cushy Gigs Creative.
You can find his work in a variety of mediums, and usually with a strong Miami accent. Quake is mainly inspired by abstract lettering treatments and the everyday things he sees around him; including Miami’s highways, water towers, crashing waves and abandoned buildings, but prides himself on tackling new projects whenever given the opportunity.
