Miguel (BOSS) Martinez – Houston, Texas

Miguel was born in Lima Peru. He came to the US at 8 years of age and was raised in New Jersey where he was introduced to graffiti. He never looked back. Miguel's artist name is (BOSS). He came to Houston when he was 16. BOSS always enjoyed drawing funny letters and characters. He was doing graffiti before he knew what graffiti was. He took a break from art, but in 2012 when he began the process of a divorce, art helped and healed him. BOSS also worked for a major bank, but says "Just because I work in corporate America, does not mean I can't let my creative side out." He teaches his two young daughters that: one side of the coin does not have to suppress the other.
