Kimbo Henry an Artist born in Brooklyn, NY has had a passion for drawing since the age of 5. Though this passion was there, it wasn't until 15 Kimbo turned a hobby into a dream worthy of chasing. "I started buckling down and reading as many "How-to-Draw" books as I could get my hands on, then, I would take different techniques I learned from different books and artists and apply them to my own art until I achieved the aesthetic that I was looking for."
One of the biggest influences in the great development of artistry we see in Kimbo is Aaron McGruder. Most inspired by the work McGruder did with The Boondocks comic strip; which became a world recognized animated cartoon. Kimbo Henry has hopes to one day impact society in a way his perspective is seen by all.
