John Tsombikos is known for initiating a memorial graffiti campaign after his best friend (nicknamed "BORF") committed suicide when he was 16 years old. Tsombikos found his grief therapy in spray painting a stencil of BORF's face and writing his name everywhere imaginable. In 2005 Tsombikos was arrested in Washington, DC. He was sentenced to 18 months in jail, as well as hundreds of hours of community service, fines, and years of supervision. 

Tsombikos has exhibited works in the US and internationally. He draws and paints things addressing the cause / effect relationship between the despondency of his generation and the poverty of modern life, all while humorously searching for a transcendent buoyancy. >> Click Here for More Works by This Artist
