While in his youth he wrote graffiti, becoming most active during the late 1990’s, and becoming a technician of wild style graffiti letters, tags and bubble letters simultaneously as he evolved as a traditional painter of scenes, abstraction and classical portraiture. In graduate school he studied with artists Paul Rahilly, Ken Beck, Paul Goodnight, Vanessa Platacis, and Dike Blair. Percy states that he is inspired by the beautiful, creative, and destructive forces of Mother Nature, and the architecture of the Creator. His inspirations range from painters like Anders Zorn to John Singer Sargent, to wild-style grafitti pieces and tags with drippy markers. Exhibiting within both the public and private spheres and creating large and small-scale pieces, Percy has participated many graffiti events including Meeting of Styles in the Bronx, and Under Pressure in Montreal. He was juried into the Copley Art Society and was honored with a recent solo show at Milton Academy’s Nesto Gallery in 2013, and he has been selected in a juried exhibition by Jonathan LeVine at Parlor Gallery, Nj in 2013 and in 2014 a group exhibit at the Copley Society juried by Paul HA.
