Jeremy ‘Sobek’ Harrison is Boston born and raised. Dorchester has always been home and Sobek accredits Mattapan Square for teaching him everything Hip Hop, especially Graffiti. Already a young illustrator, Sobek started learning aerosol and his love for arts enhanced becoming his passion. His first Graffiti piece was painted in 98’ although he has been tagging since 97’, now merging his illustrations and Graffiti into large scale murals of aerosol abstract realism.
Sobek’s passion for the arts, specifically Graffiti, and its positive representation has led him to start Back Against the Wall. The initiative helps the inner-city community make their words and self-portraits visible on a larger scale encouraging the positive power of words and familiar faces. Graffiti is an important part of this mission because it was birthed through rebellious strength motivating a culture to recognize their power.
