Devon Rodriguez, born and raised in the South Bronx, says his dream was always to be a big artist.
He began his TikTok journey in 2020 with the goal of showcasing his artwork.
He is best known for posting small clips of him painting portraits of strangers he spots on the subway and the streets of New York City.
Rodriguez has over 33 million followers on Tik Tok.
He attributes the unconditional support of his family and the hustle mentality engrained in the streets of the Bronx as one of the reasons he finds himself here today.
He says if a little kid from Brook Avenue can make it happen, fellow Bronxites with a dream can as well.
