GRAPHAIDS

Craola

“Having an overactive imagination since a very young age” Greg Simkins, aka Craola, says he has “become increasingly interested in the rabbit holes we fall down when daydreaming.” His childhood obsession with Disney cartoons and children’s stories has fueled further exploration of other lands to escape into, in the tradition of Narnia, Middle Earth, and Neverland. He has attached the all-encompassing label “The Outside” to the worlds of his imagination. Born in the Los Angeles suburb of Torrance in the mid-70s, Simkins adopted the name Craola at age 18, and has been working full-time as an artist since 2005—starting out as an illustrator and now most recently developing his own clothing line, IMSCARED, and applying his “warped imagination” to much sought after surrealist gallery pieces. This fanciful 2014 mural was done for ‘the outside’ of the old Graphaids store on La Cienaga Blvd. The store has now relocated across the street, but as of a month ago this piece continued to stand strong.  @craolasimkins  @graphaids
