About the Artist

As a public service, Chase, artist/designer and Belgium transplant now living in Los Angeles, paints free murals around the world depicting young children with the text next to them saying: "Remember Who You Are". The intent behind the mural campaign is to inspire people to think back and reconnect with a state of being that we all enjoyed when we were children, a state of being that was filled with joy, truth, love and wonder for the world around us. Furthermore, the "Remember Who You Are" campaign also reminds us that we should always remember who we are, where we came from and where we are going.

Chase's other mural installations revolve around his "Awareness Geezers", who are best described as colorful characters who have stumbled upon spirituality and awareness not by following the suggested path in life, but rather by having created their own path, guided by their sense of adventure and an "irreducable element of rascality". The "Awareness Geezers" bring with them the fruits of their experiences in the form of uplifting messages such as "you can't until you say you can", "be peace", and "go without if you don't go within". The messages are designed to inspire soul-searching conversations with one's self or with others.

Some of Chase's past clients include Western Union, Flip Skateboards, Altamont, Guess, Puma, Adidas, Levi's, Scion, Acura, Hot Kiss, Bloomingdale's, GenArt, and Palmer Snowboards.

In October 2006, Italian Vogue named Chase one of their favorite artists in the world amongst Banksy, Shephard Fairey and Space Invader. Since then Chase has been featured in more than 40 magazines from over 6 countries.

With over 150 murals painted in the greater Los Angeles area and around the world, appearances on TV and in magazines, and with his limited edition items available at select stores worldwide, Chase's work has been seen by millions.
