The best place to see Demont “Peekaso” Pinder’s colorful, music-themed artwork isn’t in a gallery. It’s on Instagram. Displaying his art, documenting his travels and advertising pieces that are available for purchase, the social media network serves as Pinder’s home base.
A quick scroll through his Instagram account looks like a who’s who of black entertainmment: smiling with Chaka Khan, joking around with Kelly Rowland, and on-stage painting with rappers Rakim and Slick Rick.
A full-time artist, Pinder, 34, spends a large chunk of his time traveling with R&B singer and high-school friend Raheem DeVaughn, a job that has taken Pinder all over the world. He has used that connections and exposure to build his business and following.
