Don Kobasky (b.1965) was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. While employed as a railroad track-worker for New York City, an injury forced him to quit whereupon he moved permanently to Florida's west coast in 1987.
Don became world renowned as a famous tattoo artist in the 1990's and founded what today is the world's largest tattoo supply company. Don left the tattoo industry in 2002 to pursue his oil painting passion and was soon enjoying having his high impact custom works collected by NFL and NBA stars, Hollywood film personalities, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers and household name business elite.
Don specializes in large scale custom oil paintings rendered in multiple styles ranging from colorful surrealism to monotoned photorealism and prides himself on not being pigeonholed into any one style or subject matter.
