LocustSongs is the pseudonym to this San Francisco-based artist who has taken his art from the canvas to the streets. This self-admitted punk-influenced artist was born and raised in Michigan and left as soon as he finished high school. He thought he won’t be the artist he is today had he chosen to stay in his hometown. He calls himself a weirdo and admitted that smoking weed made him creatively compulsive and optimistic.
Locust is known for his artworks on the street walls of San Francisco. In an interview with StreetArtSF, he expressed early aversion to art in galleries saying it did not feel right and it was not his scene. It was in 2009 when he started painting on walls, both indoor and outdoor. He believes in the importance of scale and that sometimes art should be bigger than the person, or bigger than the frame, or even beyond the gallery. He mainly uses house/mural paint for street arts and acrylics and markers for paintings.
