John Dukes is a self taught artist. With the belief that art lives innately and not everyone
needs to learn it in the traditional sense being in the classroom, John set out to develop
his style. Just as graffiti artists are self taught or learn by doing, he follows the lines and
shapes in his imagination. Majority of his inspiration is drawn from urban culture of
growing up in Denver. His childhood was full of grit and hardship but it is in those things
that taught him beauty in all things.
