Hello my name is Jeff Hamada, I am a Japanese Canadian artist living and working in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. In 2008 I created Booooooom which quickly became one of the largest art blogs on the Internet.


I've had the opportunity to create and collaborate, in various ways, with brands like: Mercedes, MTVAdobeLevi'sConverse, VICEAritziaOakleyNative Shoes, Poketo, and many others.
