B.A.M.R.   -   BECOMING A MAN RIGHTEOUSLY 

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Having been born on the Coast of California in Fort Ord, and having since lived in East Oakland, South Hayward, North and South Stockton and currently a resident of Sacramento since 2009, artist Demetris "BAMR" Washington is no stranger to the diverse range of culture that the Golden State has to offer. These cultural influences are often evident in his works, as he creates with an aim to tell stories that inspire all who come in contact. 

Influenced by comic books, cartoons, graffiti and surrealism, BAMR’s art is an ultimate mashup of dream-like visuals for all to enjoy.
