My name is Derek Steven Rodarte, I was born in Los Angeles, California and grew up in Whittier, California June 24th 1985, Beverly Center in Montebello.
My Profession as a painter start well before college as I intended for video game Art and design, and i only even attened the college to make my mom poud, you see i started painting after hearing that my both my mom and grandmother were both dignosed with cancer, i needed an outlet more then drawing, over the years i would become obsessed with art, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali and becoming the next Great painter.
In evolution with paint, I literally transformed space and time. My only proof was video captured over the years, showcasing my steps into so many different trades and mediums along with remarkable spellbinding moments.
My gifts made me unique, but the drive was because I dislike being compared to other artists, and I had an infinity to be different and something new.
in the time of 2006 I had a personal and very private transformation into the artist Royal D' Art which was a product of my philosophy and brand 5EW.
