Ritchie Kong 'Skrybe52' 
of Mosaic Church of Whittier

Graphic Designer • Graffiti Artist

Growing up in the streets of Paramount/Compton, Ritchie faced many hardships as a minority and channeled his experiences into visual forms. While being set-apart in his neighborhood, Ritchie discovered graffiti and used it as his catharsis. Ritchie practiced urban art most of his high school years and continued with it throughout college where he received his bachelors in graphic design and illustration and now contributes his artistic talents to non-profits. Since then, Ritchie has been involved with organizations such as Invisible Children, To Write Love On Her Arms, Global Inheritance and Mercy Ships. He believes that by offering his services can incite others to make a difference in their community.
