Aton Ibé Crawley
Born in Washington D.C. to a creative family, creation has been ingrained in my dna. Illustrated since he could hold a pencil and have been taking photos for almost 8 years now. Having been drawn to the visual image more than the written word for as long as he can remember, growing up he didn’t read very many books that weren't graphic novels or comic books. When he graduated high school, he immediately moved to New York in pursuit of resources that could help him on his journey to becoming a professional Artist. He attended Borough of Manhattan Community College for a year and a half while making connections and friends that would help him along hi path. After connecting with Walter Pearce, he left school to pursue a career in casting and helped him + Rachel Chandler form the Midland Casting Agency. After 4 years of casting with Midland agency New York began to feel small and secluded. He knew that there was such a large world out there, and that his life had more to offer. He knew then what he knows now: "that I am talented, and considering what I have already accomplished there is no limit to where my art can take me. That is exactly why I will continue to create and put out new work to the best of my ability. At the end of the day my art is just another extension of my physical experience in this world and the world will be honored to have it."
