Artist Biography: World-renowned mixed media artist Dubelyoo (pronounced W) has been on a mission to enlighten the masses via a broad range of outlets, from producing the largest touring urban art show in the U.S. to collaborating with corporate giants such as Nike, Pepsi, Coca-Cola and Heineken. Although he is based in Atlanta, Ga., Dubelyoo is a revered globetrotter who has mastered the ability to bridge the gap between urban and pop culture through his visual exploration of a wide range of topics from celebrity portraits to controversial social commentary.
After earning a BFA degree from East Carolina University, Georgia’s capital would soon serve as the launch pad for Dubelyoo’s ideology: “Artistic freedom through artistic independence.” Proudly crediting his fondness for hip-hop, Dubelyoo’s global eminence stems from his brilliant method of creating an artistic paradox of “exaggerated exactness” to birth mind-blowing renderings of rap icons including Jay-Z, the Notorious B.I.G., Slick Rick and others. His surreal interpretations of music legends, celebrities, politicians and even comic book heroes have garnered contracts with both urban and world-leading companies.
Dubelyoo, who is popularly labeled “The Art Bishop” in various social arenas, is also a highly successful art curator; his first show sold out the High, the biggest museum in the Southeast, in two hours. To add, besides being endorsed by one of the nation’s leading art supply stores, libation giant Jack Daniels continues to be the chief sponsor for Dubelyoo’s co-production of America’s largest traveling urban art exhibition titled “Art, Beats + Lyrics.” Closing out 2009, he was featured in the highly acclaimed “Imaginary Friend” show during Art Basel 2009 hosted in Miami, Fl.
By producing art exhibitions and providing his creative genius to music videos, feature films, publications and Web sites, Dubelyoo continues to prove that “underground” art can elevate to infinite heights during 2010 and beyond.
