EWOK 5MH Born1976. Currently resides and paints from his ultra lavish penthouse studio in Downtown Brooklyn, where he relocated to in 1996(from upstate NY) to attend Pratt Institute. 4 years later graduating with a BFA in Traditional Animation. Today Ewok’s work is most recognized for its distinctly warped character style and colorful play on “fine art” that has been shamelessly mimicked by the commercial art world time and again over the last decade. His original works have been exhibited in galleries (and in the streets) spanning the U.S., Japan, Indonesia, Canada, Puerto Rico, and Mexico. With his sights aiming even further, Ewok continues to reinvent himself while blood sucking trend vultures hungrily keep chase and develope entire careers based off of watered down, recycled EWOK 5MH concepts. EWOK 5MH this, EWOK 5MH that, blah blah blah EWOK 5MH doesn’t sleep till 6 am almost every day, can fly in his dreams, survives by eating gold nuggets, looks at porn in the afternoon while the majority of the world is getting verbally abused by under qualified bosses with inferiority complexes.

About the Artist



An adventurous and only child born in New Jersey in 1976. Relocated in 1979 with his single, hardworking mother to upstate New York (The Catskills/Hudson Valley) where he was raised and again relocated in the Fall of 1996 as a young adult to Brooklyn. In pursuit of furthering his art education, his portfolio was reviewed at a cafeteria lunch table at Pratt Institute. After enrolling, he was trained in Color, Anatomy, Drawing, Painting, History, and Philosophy over the next 4 years. In 2000, he received his Bachelors Degree in Traditional Hand Drawn Animation. This particular academic focus would prove to play a pivotal role in the development of his unique "cartoony" caricature style he is most recognized for today. His work can be found showcased on the covers of many culturally significant books, like 'Graffiti New York' by Eric Felisbret, and 'NYC Graffiti, The Next Stage' by Rico Nose. His work has graced the covers of and has been featured in more than a 100 magazines and books worldwide.

Among his accolades, by no means has he been given an easy path to where he is today. Along his journey, he's had to make some hard sacrifices at the expense of his own freedom and personal relationships. Today, Mr. Ewokone has become a household name and a representational embodiment of his generation. A 90s era Graffiti Vandal continuing on his path to become a professional illustrator and a globally sought-after fine artist whose paintings fetch anywhere in the 10s of thousands of dollars. He is a proud bi-product of New York City and the East Coast that raised him. He's been very fortunate to travel the globe over the last 25 years pursuing his goals and ambitions through the vehicle of artistic expression.

In 2014, he lives and creates out of a studio apartment in Brooklyn New York, where he continues on his journey embracing the unknown and welcoming the unfamiliar, along with his intern/side kick, the now infamous Lt. Shiny Sides.
