Artist Profile - MESANGER

Over the next few weeks we are going to be profiling the artists who will be taking part in the Balcones Burner Bash competition.

Artist Profile - MESANGER
MESANGER started "serious" graffiti painting in 1997 in west Texas. After a four year run in the desert, he moved to Austin. In an effort to broaden his artistic horizons, he became a member of Austin's local hip hop group, MSG crew. Over the next five years he made many connections in the art and music scene through his work with the MSG crew. These connections allowed MESANGER to expand his art to include more formal settings, like gallery shows and organized music events. MESANGER has been fully immersed in the urban art world. His work has appeared in venues coast to coast, and he is committed to promoting Austin's hip hop scene. He has had the opportunity to paint along side some of the most accomplished artists in the Texas graffiti art world, and he has shared the stage with some of underground hip hop's biggest names. Through all of his experiences in the underground music and art scenes, he gives back to the community through sound and sight as the MESANGER.
