Himmsey, hailing from Akron, Ohio, is a New York City based visual artist. His work draws inspiration from the realms of fashion, high finance, and street culture, all of which make New York the most unique, yet cutthroat city in the world.

Much of his work is based around functional art, including skate decks and miniature basketball hoops created from antique Victorian and Baroque style frames. His artwork is often created using mixed media, and combine opposing themes, resulting in clashing and provocative images, pieces, and messages.
