Starting out at the turn of the millennium, Zimer learned the art of graffiti on the underground walls of Queens, New York. As an adolescent, he mastered his craft by spending every available moment painting or studying countless international artists at 5pointz aerosol museum. After developing his personal aesthetic, he increasingly adopted fine art principles into his paintings with frequent visits to the Met. Eventually, the mix of street and fine art are intertwined to the point where his art transcends any typology.
Yearning to stretch his creative mind to the maximum, he enrolled in architecture school, earning aB.Arch. from the New York Institute of Technology. In addition to painting and architecture, Zimer works in sculpture, fashion, furniture, animation, and graphic design.
Of the hundreds of murals Zimer has completed, many were painted nationally and internationally. Some locations and events he painted include The New York Auto Show, Comic Con, The World Trade Center, Philadelphia Tattoo Convention, London’s South Bank, and the Northside Arts Festival.
Zimer has worked with many reputable clients over the years, such as MTV, Virgin Records, USA Network, A&E Network, Rebel, Intrinsic Wine Co., Bowen Media, Random House Publishers, The City of New York, and The City of Glen Cove. His press features include Forbes, Business Insider, Newsday, Elemental Magazine, Rides Magazine, and the books ‘Hip Hop Files’ and ’Burning New York’
