Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, Chad Hasegawa was enthralled with graffiti and the art of the Mission School. He moved to San Francisco and worked in advertising for many years before becoming a full time artist concentrating on creating mural work and painting canvases. Chad’s participation in and influence by the graffiti community taught him how to be resourceful with paint and supplies. The work can be viewed as an elaborate color design, an almost mosaic pointillism of brick-like shapes. This is due to his unique and aggressively large, abstract body shape.
