Most known for his awing portraits and unique fashion, the St. Louis native’s talent extends far beyond canvases and streetwear. Choosing to live outside the limitations placed on artists, Prophet has excelled in all forums of creativity. He’s fulfilled the role of Lead Designer for several successful fashion brands; done graphic design work for many artists, organizations and businesses; painted murals, and created niche paintings.

In 2017, Prophet relocated to Los Angeles, California – where he currently resides- to make an imprint in the city’s burgeoning fashion and art scene.

Since Prophet’s arrival in L.A. his career has been on an upward trajectory. His innovative style has been recognized by several stylists affording him opportunities to work with a multitude of public figures.

He’s created custom artwork for Bernice Burgos, Snoop Dogg, Master P, Trumaine Johnson, and Blueface to name a few.

An example of Prophet’s astonishing artwork can be seen on the outside wall of Sorella Boutique on Melrose where his Kobe Bryant mural has made local news and garnered a large social media buzz.

You’ll be hard pressed to find a person alive that can walk the runway, design and create the clothes for the models, create and paint the walls in the venue – that’s Prophet! A creative that inspires the creatives.
