Today we’d like to introduce you to Gabriel Prusmack.

Gabriel, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
About 16 years ago, I was influenced by the street art of Los Angeles while visiting my brother in the summers. Not knowing such a big art scene was in Houston until discovering the street art in general on vacation, I started where I live. Growing up in Galveston, I knew Houston being so close was an advantage to keep the inspiration. Taken some art classes in high school and college, learning design and color has been incredibly helpful! I don’t know where I’d is with the help of Christ Jesus leading me in ministry as my art career was developing over the past few years. Learning business with artwork and having integrity with it has grown to the point of me being an artist full-time. Joy of the Lord is literally how I continue, to BE FREE is to live by your heart in the most giving, influential, passionate way. So, I have taken on,”Be Free” as a motto for my life lately and it amazing! I am in the process of taking graphic design classes to improve my craft, as well as painting larger murals.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Definitely no smooth road, hahaha! Sometimes, you do work you don’t want to do just to make ends meet, it’s definitely a grinder sometimes, just getting your name out there is all footwork and helping others to build a network. you have to give respect to get respect. But I say when you make friends instead of colleagues, oh, and you’re on your way to good success and that’s what I love to do. Giving back to others is a good success and that will never leave if you grow into it. Do what you love in your work and you’ll never work a day of your life, that’s exactly what I look for in my passion for artwork.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Gabriel prusmack story. Tell us more about the business.
I am currently selling artwork for a living, I’ve have been selling artwork for 11 years now. More recently in the past few years, my motivation has been towards mural work to just go bigger. I am most proud of the references I get from people from job to job. Having the style I have with colors and design within my work is noted as joyful, playful and full of life is what people have told me it makes them feel. That interpretation sets me apart from others I’d say.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
Ehhh, I’m not one to go off of luck at all really. I think superstitions are something that can rule us with fear. I’d rather just be a blessing to someone cause it always comes back. Good and bad things happen to everyone, but persistence will keep a business going.
