Defer has been an integral part of the early graffiti art movement in Los Angeles since the mid 1980's. He is well known for expertly rendering beautifully complex letter forms. In the past 10 years Defer's work has been transcending into the realm of fine art. His recent works have evolved into the obliteration of the structured letter form into what he refers to as "spiritual language" - an automatic and spontaneous volley of brush strokes - conveying messages from the subconscious. Defer's influence on the visual language found not only in the city of angels but around the world cannot be overlooked.
