Emit has been around, painting and switching up styles, since the late 80’s. He pioneered the DF crew with fellow artist Sub not long after, and has garnered a tremendous amount of attention, both individually and collaboratively, over the last few decades for his vibrant large-scale works and productions, and his trademark clean, textbook, metropolitan b-boy style; always legible, always packed to the brim with texture and detail.
Emit, joined up with ex professional snowboarder and dj/promoter Steve Blakely to co-found The Firm Graphics. This edgy design firm has been doing work for the entertainment industry for the past 19 years. You may have seen the Firm’s design work promoting events such as Electric Daisy Carnival, Lights all Night, and Paradiso just to name a few. The Firm aided in the production of the DF crew coffee table graffiti book “Idiots on Parade”. Collectively, DF artists have had work in over 100 gallery and museum shows and many have used their graffiti background to branch off into commercial design, toy design, illustration, and tattoos. Emit has been invited to paint for festivals and events all over the US and has recently painted in Seattle for the Paradiso 2017 event with over 30k in attendees. Emit and The Firm Graphics have garnered international acclaim for their progressive and distinctive design work within the electronic music and entertainment industry, as well as DF crew gaining world wide recognition for their creative and innovative graffiti styles.
