Alim is a visual artist from Delaware that we met along our travels at 'Afropunk' this past year. His booth was undeniable with all original pieces, prints and even a set up where he was doing a live piece everyday of the festival. We had to pick up the Tupac piece for the studio.
Very recently we heard a podcast by @shefonnachelle featuring Alim where he gave us his 10 Art Commandments.
