Daek William

Rokeby Road

” My Work transcends from a life of working on the street. Street art to me is about being focused and amerced  in one piece of work in a hectic world that is short lived, to walk away knowing that this piece I was dedicated to will be destroyed. Its a refreshing feeling of a care free environment that makes my work in the gallery all that more significant to my world.” Daek William 2013
