Graffitist Hamilton Yokota’s art style is influenced from his Japanese heritage and Brazilian upbringing. At age 13, he began drawing on the walls of his home, and instead of being punished by his mother, she realized his talent and encouraged him to learn more with Brazilian cartoonist Mauricio de Souza. For seven years, Souza taught him how to draw and develop characters. Today, Yokota (a.k.a. Titi Freak) is an established illustrator and street artist who has worked for Adidas, Ecko, Nike, and other companies.
