Candid Chats with DJ Neff
_________________________

In collaboration with Beautify Earth and Palms Neighborhood Council, Artist DJ Neff was slated to paint a retaining wall along Overland Ave. in the Palms neighborhood of West LA.
Armed with an instantly recognizable aesthetic, blending riotous hues, coalesced with geometric shapes, and stunning native wildlife motifs, culminate into picturesque murals.
The artist, a tall, goateed, mild-mannered, baseball cap-doning, paint-splattered cargo pants-wearing kinda guy, hails from the streets of North Central Florida.

The Florida Gator paused work on the mural, momentarily, to discuss early beginnings.
Vividly recalling tagging freight trains, authority apprehension, and his first paid job painting a college night club; his voice, even-toned and his eyes locked elsewhere
Acquiring a degree in Graphic Design, his work life bustled.
Work as an Art Director, kept him busy still, with email correspondences and phone calls from prospective clients, inquiring of DJ’s services.
Now, in his mid-30’s, the business owner, in a less-hurried mode, vehemently declares he will never work a 9 to 5 job again, rather, determined to expand his artistic prowess and practices.
DJ confesses his interest in tackling tattoo artistry and most importantly, aims to forge his own path and just wants to “live a well-balanced life based on art.” Walls in Ámsterdam, Finland and the U.S. bear his name. Wanderlusting, DJ optimistically lists countries he aspires to visit such as: Australia, Thailand and those in South America & Africa.
Throughout the interview, DJ spoke enthusiastically of a potential, forthcoming gig, hoping to be selected. Happy to mention, DJ will be adding his dynamic palette to the streets of Hawaii for a new project!
Stay tuned for DJ Neff's future endeavors, follow @DJN3ff on the gram!
