Based out of Atlanta, GA, Dubelyoo began his art career in ad and web design and starting branching out into urban illustration for companies such as Lugz and Ecko. These early projects led to larger commissions from companies like Apple and Pepsi.

His most recent work entitled, social Surveillance, speaks to these relationships while commenting on pop culture and the effect it has on the public.
