The story of AKA99 begins with a childhood enchantment with Technology and Video Games. Since the early 80's, the artist tinkered with ASCII art and BASIC Computer Programming on the earliest Computer Systems. Both of the parents were professional artists and surrounded the child in a studio environment. The 30+ year resident of Jersey City has lived and breathed Art, Technology, and Jersey City itself. AKA999 stands for 'Also Known AS' and '999' from the 999 stamp commonly found on 24k pure gold bars, to equal 'Also known as Gold'. Gold has always had a permanent and huge role in the history of humanity – from our ancient ancestors, to now, with technology quickly becoming the global currency. Gold is the optimal element for use in Computer Circuits and Motherboards, which solidifies that Gold and Technology go hand in hand. AKA999 invites you to marvel at the convergence of Technology, Gold, and Art.
