First touched earth in Stillwater, OK., received misinformation and miseducation in Portland Or., followed family roots from the NW all throughout the mid-west. Landing currently back on the left-coast in Los Angeles.
From a family background in Architecture and Interior Design Codak developed a fascination with "line", its quality, ambiguity and emotion. with an early experience doodling his favorite comic book characters, falling off his skateboard and riding the bus, he would find himself caught by the Graffiti bug. Noticing first the Random Symbols of "Zely" a graffiti writer active in the mid-late 80's in his native Portland. Followed shortly by exposure to "Spray Can Art" and a group or writers from LA who pointed him to the path that got him where he is today.
Cans have been emptied, Paint brushes have been abused, Markers overfilled, pencils broken, Buff paint spilled, Computer screens burned out, hard drives fried....... Still in hot pursuit of progression.
