My name is AVENGER! I’m from Tampa Florida. I started on the streets and switched to ne art when my daughter was born. @keverones @evolver_orida @texer_fus were artists that really inspired me. I went to school with evolver and seeing him writeand draw in his books made me want to get out there.

Started in 87 in Compton, had to change it to "If/Iph" when I got switched on by Purr (KD) in like 1991. THE first SD crew I got in was NM. My crew history/lineage is NM, RTS, PGK, OFA, AEK, K187, TNE, STP. In 2001 became a firefighter and started giving back to the community. Helped start a couple of nonprofits helping youth get off probation and help them in their art (MAAC and Turning the Hearts Center). In 2013 I started Aerosolympics, a graffiti art and battle show/event that eventually grew to tour many Southern California Cities when we were absorbed into the Extreme Autofest car show circuit. DyseOne being one of our supporters and sponsors in its second season. Currently, I curate several walls in San Diego, Pacific Beach, and Chula Vista, CA.; Seligman, Yuma, and Phoenix, AZ. I also am in development with the County of San Diego's Probation Department to create a mural for their new Probation building in North Park, San Diego, while being mentored by an art professor from Southwestern College. ...all while still catching tags, slaps n bombs here n there. Lol.
