Casey Courey-Pickering, who goes by the artist name “Hero” is a self-taught LA based mixed media stencil artist. Since 2007, he has worked on incorporating new elements and techniques into his art. Prior to becoming an artist himself, Hero immersed himself in graffiti art being influenced by the works of Andy Warhol, Banksy, Jackson Pollock, JR, Richard Hamilton, Shepard Fairey, and David Flores ATC (a local LA artist). In 2009 he moved his stencil work from his studio and canvas to galleries and other mediums, having begun commissioning his artwork Hero thought of an idea for a sticker campaign. Being born in the eighties Hero utilized two iconic figures from the eighties to create AlfPacino, this sticker campaign immediately gained popularity worldwide.

His Art Wear collection is a dive into post-pop art communization to 21st century lifestyle and current events.
