There is not a lot known about the artist Moabit. He is rumoured to be British, but when you dig deeper one might doubt that theory. London would be a good guess, but Venice, Italia or Spain also belong to the list op possibilities. Beside that, the closest Moabit comes to a personal website is his gallery on UP & COMING ART and his Instagram page.
That said, there are few things we do know about him and it's quite an intriguing story. Moabit started drawing and painting at an early age. His family lived on the countryside and was struggling to get by. With his art Moabit was able to take care of himself. He sold his drawings to his classmates in exchange for some pocket money and he continued to support himself with his art ever since.
Moabit completely restarted his artistic journey when he took on the identity of Moabit 3 years ago. And being already successful is quite extraordinary for an artist with no formal education. Moabit briefly went to an art school, but he dropped out to work in a carpeting factory. His success is not just due to his talent, but also because of his dedication. He ones said that he works around the clock; when he is not painting, he is creating the next big thing in his mind.
