Artist lecture with Andrew Yasgar, AKA Sket One

2011-10-17 by News, Sports, and Art

Sket One (Andrew Yasgar) grew up in New Haven, Conn. where he put down his artistic roots as a graffiti artist starting in 1986 while hip-hop swept the country. Between painting walls and keeping an eye out for the police, Sket’s understanding and appreciation of urban art and culture grew.

From those first experimentations painting and creating with spray cans, Sket soon found himself honing his skills and leveraging them into commercial design opportunities. In this podcast, Sket takes us on a biographical journey through all of his past jobs and projects, and tells how those experiences led him to where he is today.
