Growing up in Champaign, Illinois, Shambé learned to appreciate all forms of art; from musical to visual. At a very young age he found it very easy to express himself through visual art. As he became older Shambé began to develop a name for himself and tackled many sensitive topics, and was not afraid to do so. After graduating high school, Bro. Shambé left for Mississippi in sight of a new beginning. He began studying Art at Jackson State University. His studies led him to experimenting with several mediums; which includes: Ceramic, Painting, Sculpture, and Pyrography. This only gave him more fuel to take on more sensitive topics. Bro. Shambé always wanted to expand his horizons; he traveled abroad with Jackson State University-Study Abroad Program, by way of Drew University to Coté D'ivoire, Africa in search of new ideas. After returning he had a stronger interest in Pyrography. He was fascinated with the etched walls of caves, in which cavemen used fire sticks. Over the years Bro. Shambé has produced hundreds of wood burnings, along with paintings, and sculptures. He even has a new venture with hand painted t-shirts and Clothing. His work continues to cultivate a new generation: Ask For More Arts / Jackson Public Schools and Kiddie College / Jackson State University.
