ABOUT

Dexter Komakaru, known under his artist name DXTROSE, is a Freelance Illustrator and Artist based in CBUS, OH. Over the years he has built a career out of visual arts, content creation, and creativity around a mission of ART, ACTIVISM, and ACCESS: sharing his insights, experiences, and education on art and activism with others by making the information, resources, and his work accessible. 

With a multidisciplinary background and over five years of dedicated experience freelancing, he creates art inspired by the work he does in intersectional activism and community organizing around his experiences and identities as a Queer, Trans, and Native American person. It's his hope that his work will be able to resonate with people who relate to the stories and hardships he's experienced. 

 

 Since starting to share his work as DXTROSE in 2015, he's been able to work with various clients, organizations, and companies on a wide variety of different projects and endeavors. He's currently studying online while making a career out of his artwork, offering commissions, private sales, art licensing, and business-to-business/business-to-customer client work as well as working on upcoming personal projects. 

You can stay up to date with his work, updates, and more through his social media or his upcoming blog on DXTROSE.COM. 

Currently booking work for FALL 2021 - SPRING 2022.
