Tech and K-dot
And mama call me tell me coming home
And I just need some guidance in my steps
I know i’m not the only one alone
I know i’m not the only one who felt
— Charles Bukowski (via stxxz)
Artist Alexis Seeney, better known as HypeForever, has yet to graduate high school and is already killing the industry with her innovative vector paintings found online. At 18 years old, the Durham, NC-based artist has worked with artist Soulja Boy, established a brand, and has created numerous portraits of her favorite rap and hip-hop artists such as Joey Bada$$, Kanye West, and Pharrell Williams, to name a few. Self-taught (and also a twin), Seeney had her beginnings designing MySpace pages and let her talent within the digital interface grow from there.
“There isn’t much to say about me because I am simple person,” she tells FRANK. But being as young, motivated and skilled as she is—with a resume to validate—it’s difficult to believe the budding artist is as simple as she claims. FRANK caught up with Alexis and learned about the artist behind the name HypeForever.
