Kris Diggs is a local visual artist, born and raised in the DMV, who has been painting for four years. Growing up he always loved to draw, but never took it serious.

With no formal training each painting is a learning experience, and therefor it painting is a little bit different. He continues to push his limits and boundaries of his art to become the best he can be.
