CANTSTOPGOODBOY

Alias Nick Simon

b. 1991

At 25 years old, CANTSTOPGOODBOY (CSGB), is quickly making his mark in the contemporary art world. A native of Southern California, he was introduced to the world of art at an early age by his mother, a professional art restorer. His talents were recognized early but school would not prove to be the environment in which he would flourish. In high school, CANTSTOPGOODBOY was discouraged by a short-sighted art teacher, resulting in a four year hiatus.

With no formal training, he rediscovered his love for art during his freshman year of college where he became inspired both by the prominence of street art and by an art professor who quickly recognized his abilities. After one semester he transferred to the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he took general studies classes while his art was sidelined as a hobby. It only took one semester at Boulder for CANTSTOPGOODBOY to realize that creating art, and not academics, is his true passion.

With a meticulous attention to detail, utilizing mixed media (vintage comics) and various other techniques which he has coined the term “RealFake.”

Collaborations with companies such as Sony, Warner Bros., Serj Tankian, Atlantic Records, Coachella Music Festival, Absolut Vodka, Converse, TOMS Shoes, Sol Republic, the Audience, eOne Entertainment and American Idol to name a few, show you clearly CANTSTOPGOODBOY.
