Ant Spades is an artist currently living in Germantown, Philadelphia, PA. His interest involve creating new work from clothing to canvases and finding new inspirations.
A statement from the artist —
Spades came from a family of seven. At young age he realized his parents couldn't afford the things he wanted so he started selling his designs on shirts. At the age of 14 his skate team was partnered with a clothing brand and he designed most parts of there collection. He only got $20 and no returned phone calls. This sparked the idea for his own brand using his tagging name Spades. After getting kicked out of his neighborhood high school realized college wasn't for him so he started featuring in local art shows displaying his artwork and clothing. Now at the age of 20, Ant Spades is working with peformers and other creatives in the tri state area and as far as the UK.
