Hi, my name is the Funky Diabetic, I got into art around 2006 after studying a little bit in high school and just doing art with some of my skateboard friends. In 2011, my whole life had changed due to getting diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Obviously lots of things had to change in my life and so did my art! I was already interested in abstract canvas art at the time and was starting to doodle little squiggleys--my version or my vision of my insulin syringes and needles and some other feelings and motions that come with living with diabetes. I combined my spray paint obsession with my abstract expressionism background arrived where my work is at now.
