From Wikipedia: & Wikicyclopedia:

Among the most well-known "Hypergothic" surrealist-artists and authors from the United States, "Dark Riddle" is a Chicago-based artist, photographer and author, primarily known as a popular graffiti muralist, then turned to build a fan base in the genera of science fiction and surreal horror.

He is known for book works such as Chupacabra Visions, Knight Syndrome, The Zombie Bible Anthology, Untold Tales of BTB, and Empire of Dirt.

He works with many publishers doing illustrations and literature. Best known for mixing and merging traditional free-hand drawing, Graffiti Art, photography and literature.

Additionally, Dark Riddle is a (Renaissance & Dark Age) RMA & DMA Martial Artist, also specializing in Japanese "Kendo" sword fencing. As a result, he is infamous for the popularization of the dreaded "Verti-Blade" weaponry.

During the early 1990's he created the "Hypergothics" art/writing method.

Infamous in Occult Art circles, he is regarded as the 7th "Dark" from the modern branch of the Synoptic Knights Templar.

For over 25 years, he was known as an iconic agent for the infamous BTB Graffiti Art/Activist group.

He now works with various Modeling Troops and Photographers, promoting surreal and macabre genres.

Dark Riddle has had featured work at the famed Casper Gallery, The Mexican Fine Arts Center, Life Magazine, Vibe Magazine, Liz Claire Magazine, The Chicago Cultural Center, The Center for Human Evolution, The Museum of Cryptozoology, The Futurism Gallery Hall, Jade Dragon Tattoo Emporium, and Gallery X of Dark and Gothic Arts.
