forBecks is the moniker of Chris Tidwell.
A native of Nashville, TN, USA, he was first exposed to street artists like Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Mr. Brainwash, Invader, and more while residing in Los Angeles, CA. It was there that his love for street art began.
A self-taught artist, Tidwell decided it was time to begin to share his work with the world. So, in 2017, he began wheat pasting and spray painting his way around the city. A year later he received his first public art commission.
He draws inspiration from iconic imagery, pop culture nostalgia, and the idea that art is everywhere and for everyone.
