About the Artist
Jimmy Baptiste is a father, youth educator/facilitator, graphic artist, curator and muralist. His work is inspired by the imaginative world of tattoos, graffiti, typography, manga culture, and comic books. These elements have helped him to develop a unique aesthetic that embraces strong imageries and vibrant visual compositions.
With more than 15 years of experience as a professional artist, Jimmy offers art workshops and creative projects that include curated exhibits and community-media projects. With his unique approach to education, he aims to build a sense of ownership and belonging in schools and communities, using murals and graffiti to engage people of all ages in a positive skill-building experience.
