David “Don Rimx” Sepulveda was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. His family lived in the public housing development, Nemesio R Canales, which in the 90s had a very high crime rate. Drugs and gun violence were a part of his everyday life. Through his parents watchful eyes Don Rimx was kept on the straight and narrow. They noticed his interest in drawing at a young age and nurtured it by enrolling him in weekend art classes at the local art school. He later received his diploma from the Central High School of Visual Arts and went on to continue his education at the Escuela de Artes Plasticas. Upon finishing his studies, he dedicated himself to incorporating the various techniques of classic art into urban art, with a specialization in murals. Lorenzo Homar, Jose Alicea, Rafael Tufino, Rembrandt, and Joaquin Sorolla, are just a few of the influences one see’s in the line work, color treatment and poetic imagery of his pieces.
