Keep An Eye On It. JustCobe's art is clearly influenced by Graffiti and Street Art, which have been his main interests since his youth. Early on, he noticed that he had a talent for drawing. A few years ago he then decided to devote himself to this fascination and to become artistically active. Ever since he has been fighting bare walls with his cans and markers. In addition to his customer's orders and live-drawings, he has recently been creating more and more paintings on canvas.
