Growing up in Detroit, Dawud Shabazz found himself surrounded by creativity and it had a great influence on him. At around age seven, he sketched a portrait of his mother. She was so proud that he knew at that moment,  that being an artist is what he wanted to do for the rest of his life.  He uses many different mediums – such as acrylic paints, glitter, enamel, sand and other textured elements. – and believes that working in a single medium is restrictive to his artistic process. “Each idea manifests a life of it’s own.”

African American artists such as Charles McGee, Judy Bowman, Ed Terrell, Richard Mayhew, and Kerry James Marshall have left the greatest impression upon him as an artist.
