RIME’s studio work is informed by more than 25 years of experience in graffiti. Pieces of his signature cartoonish characters peek out from the energetic swoops, evidence of the artist’s nature to allow improvisation to guide his brush. Through application of bold colors and graphic line work, RIME’s multilayered compositions mimic the wildstyle work he’s created in the public for decades. The Brooklyn-born longtime New Jersey resident is also known as alter ego Jersey Joe.
