My Name is Jerome Chester, and I'm an 22 year old visual artist from Baltimore, Md. I have been drawing for as long as I can remember, I've been painting seriously for about a year I've recently was featured in RAW's Axis show in October 2nd, it was an goup show with about 40 other artis it was an great turn out. I met a lot of great artist there and networked with a lot of other art related business minded people. I mostly get my inspiration from my 2 year old daughter, God, and the many microcosms of the City of Baltimore. My style is heavily influenced by the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat, George Condo, Annie Preece, Charles White, Miya Bailey and so on with a twist of Alley Kid Art thrown in it. Baltimore's Art scene isnt that big because the size of the city and the lack of support from the residents, but I'm hoping with a few of the other talented artist I know we can bring the scene to the forefront and let the world see our vision.
