Born Lawal Izuagbe in Atlanta, Georgia, Izuagbe’s parents were Nigerian immigrants. ARTLANTA grew up in challenging circumstances and was introduced to art through graffiti as a child. He always knew he had a natural talent for painting but never pursued it until later. The moniker ARTLANTA was derived from a childhood nickname, “lanta,” with the addition of “art” when he started delving into the world of art.

“I grew up dirt poor in the projects of Atlanta. That’s when I touched my first paintbrush and spray paint can. I used to tag trains and buses as a kid. I never went to art school or had an art class. I just always had the gift in me to paint.”

Inspiration to start creating art came from ARTLANTA’s late father, a painter who passed away when the artist was just five years old. His natural talent eventually led him to pursue painting seriously, and he has since sold his work for tens of thousands of dollars. One notable achievement in the early stages of painting was completing a Pablo Escobar portrait in just 20 minutes, significantly enhancing workflow efficiency.

The decision to take art seriously occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Bored at home, ARTLANTA explored painting, leading to friends encouraging a serious commitment to the craft. One significant art piece for ARTLANTA is a self-portrait created during challenging times. When asked what inspires him the most when it comes to painting, he said, “Basquiat and Andy Warhol. They inspire me because I love the colors Basquiat uses in his paintings, they are vibrant and pop just like my art & Andy Warhol loves to do portraits and that’s something I mastered.”
