Terry Urban was born in Cleveland, Ohio on May 23, 1977.
After graduating school he moved to San Diego, California to pursue a career in skateboarding. In his early years, Urban was interested in art and began to paint graffiti.
It was in San Diego where Terry was first introduced to Turntablism ( the art of manipulating sounds and creating new music, sound effects, mixes and other creative sounds and beats, typically by using two or more turntables)
Urban moved back to his hometown of Cleveland and began to DJ. After a succesfull career as DJ, Terry began looking for another creative outlet, and with advice from a close friend he began to paint once again in 2015.
Over the past years, Terry Urban has completely immersed himself into his work and has exhibited his paintings in many solo shows.
Urban's style is most influenced by abstract expressionisme and neo-expressionism, where he is not interested in an accurate execution of his subjects, but rather in exploring the possibilities of abstraction.
