Biography

Yosiell Lorenzo was introduced at an early age to art by his eldest sister in a time when hip hop and grafitti defined urban life. Admiring her artwork, a combination of graffiti and fantasy-like creatures, Yosiell followed in his sister’s footsteps and found a creative outlet of his own. He dabbled in graffiti in the mid 90’s while at the same time developing himself as a musician. He taught himself how to play Bass guitar and has performed in several bands. After graduating from Kolbe Cathedral High School, Yosiell attended Paier College of Art where he graduated with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Graphic Design. Yosiell worked full time as a Sales Associate at a local retail shop and toured around the United States with his band, while simultaneously finding the time to create a part time internet business under the name of Project Detonate, where he has designed tour paraphernalia, t-shirts, and other projects. After doing this for some time, Yosiell realized he wanted to experiment with his art more hands on versus sitting behind a computer all hours of the day, and quickly fell in love with painting. As a result, Project Detonate has taken a life of its own with its myriad of art projects, available products and designs.
