Born and raised in New York City, Jimmy Aponte captures an abstract point of view of the city. We found Jimmy painting on the streets of Manhattan.Taking advice from old time graffiti artist, Mark Alaquin "TEV 1." Mark advised, "when you open shop, don't be lazy and do some work; look busy. Start painting on your pictures or something." When painting on his 1st photo creating a photo/painting, it sold. Jimmy continued this process and soon became a popular SOHO street artist; selling his work to locals and art lovers from around the globe.
