Quel Beast developed his unique painting style by creating original street art in New York City. After getting burnt out on city life, Quel Beast moved to the Bay Area, and later up into the Sierra Nevada mountains of California, where he resides with his family to this day.

Divorced from the medium of the street, and unsatisfied with conventional galleries, Quel Beast has recently adopted the medium of comic books to explore new artistic horizons. In Ra-Hoo! Quel Beast continues to find inspiration in Hip-Hop, by blending styles of art like his favorite songs marry samples, beats and rhymes.
