Name: MR. MUSTART
Bio: Mr.Mustart was born in the mid-1980s at a truck stop between two small villages on an Asian continent of planet Earth in our Solar System. Growing up in the wilderness of Siberian-like climate in a rural area of Russia raised a natural tree hugger and a soul survivor. As a child, Nature Boy was going through a critical time of development, dealing with nightmares about hungry wolf packs and angry bears he seen on hunting and fishing trips with his father. Once Mustart was responsible for waking up his whole village at 3 o’clock in the morning after seeing the Northern lights for the first time and thinking it was an alien invasion. “Son is a trip”- his parents would say if they smoked pot. Mustart started to explore this world and his imagination from an early age; he finds a very intriguing phenomenon of creativity that leaves him in awe. At the age of 5, while at a lunch table in his kindergarten class he wins his first “peer drawing battle” on who can draw a truck better. The excitement from props overwhelms his pursuit of happiness, gets him mad sooped, and he begins to create art on a more serious yet still playful level. Initially starting with kids’ stuff, like animals and plants graduating to perfecting sketching Mack Trucks without even knowing the perspective at the time, naked girls, without ever seeing one in person at the time, Mustart realizes that there is no limit; there are no borders to Art. His working class parents see it important to not restrain their child from going with his chi, leaving him to wonder into the world of infinite possibilities and let him be whatever he wants to be with his chakras open.
