Rebecca, AKA 9999AD, is a 16 year old artist from the United States. Because of her mother’s art school background, Rebecca has always experimented with visual creations. She started out with pencil, charcoal, and watercolours. She has always been fascinated by letters and typography, and would often find herself in trouble at school for drawing flames on the word ‘fire’ or melting the letters in ‘melting’.
In 7th grade, she began to study graphic design and typography, pouring over writings and glyphs. By 9th grade, she dove headfirst into GIF art and photography. When asked what inspired her to create her dreamy, mesmerizing, and otherworldly creations, Rebecca said:
“I’ve always seen cool gifs and 3D art, etc. I’ve always wanted to be able to do that—I think that’s the major inspiration in my art. Additionally, my art has served as an outlet for my emotions, allowing me to let some of them out and explain how they feel to others.”
Her favorite artists include Vince McKelvie, Skip Hursh, Mr. Div, Christophe Jeudy, and many more.
