Daysean, 17

From: Bronx, NY

Focus: Rapper / Songwriter & Mixed Media Visual Artist

God Shomari “Daysean” is a 17-year old visual and Hip Hop recording artist from the Bronx, New York. In the 3rd grade, after witnessing a friend receive lots of positive feedback for his artwork, Daysean opted to pick up the pencil and start sketching. As he started middle school, his appreciation for Hip Hop and poetry evolved into a passion to write his own lyrics. These ‘hobbies’ led him to Art Start, where he improves on his artistic abilities, meets professional artists and showcases his talents. However, he feels that being able to work with peers who gravitate towards his aesthetic is the best part of the experience. Daysean aims to excel as a multitalented artist, expanding his horizon in the music production, voice, acting and fashion world. He has taken vocal lessons and a concept and character design class through Art Start while writing and recording songs with mentor Miky.
