Mr. Kiji, a Brooklyn-based artist, was born in Kyushu, Japan. He has been an active member of the AOL Artists community since 2010 when his canvas, Transisitor Radio, was featured on AOL.com. Mr. Kiji's passion for art began during an apprenticeship in Tibetan Buddhist Thangka painting when he was seventeen. He then went on to study Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design. Mr. Kiji's work currently ranges from commercial illustration to large-scale graphic projects. We are thrilled to have such an inspirational creative as part of the AOL Artists program.
