My name is Obafemi Kitching and I am a multidisciplinary graphic designer and web designer. I’m also an avid music collector. I grew up in Brooklyn, New York and have been an artist ever since I could remember.
My story is pretty much like every other kid that grew up in New York during the 70’s and early 80’s: Saturday morning cartoons, fire hydrants in the summer, bowls of sugar laced cereals, hip hop music and graffiti was what excited me. All of those things including the city itself have influenced my work and life permanently.
I started getting serious about art and my craft when I was accepted into Art & Design High School back when it was on the corner of 53rd St and 3rd ave in Manhattan. After graduating from Art & Design I enrolled in Pratt Institute where I studied Visual Communications (yes that’s what they called it then), I graduated with a B.F.A in Communication Design.
Oh that’s the younger Mr. Kitching in the picture with me …. he is the pride and joy of my life.
