Laurynas, Who Is Your Hero?

Laurynas’ transformation from a street artist working odd day jobs to a professional graffiti muralist didn’t happen by just his talent and will. He credits his wife as the driving force behind building his business and success.

“I always wanted to do what I’m doing right now, but I had fear,” he said. “But when I met my wife, she was very supportive… she pushed me to dream bigger. And then I thought, ‘Yeah, I can make it. I can make it happen.’ Now I’m getting bigger clients, bigger projects. And I feel free… She is the main reason I am where I am.”

Laurynas was never encouraged to follow his passion by his parents, teachers, or friends. He suffered from low self-esteem until he met his wife, who helped build him up and his business.

“I had a serious meeting coming up… I was supposed to meet the client and talk about the price for my work,” he recalled. “My wife asked me, ‘How much are you gonna charge?’ I told her what I was thinking, and she was like, ‘Are you crazy? You’re supposed to know how much you’re worth!’ So when I met with my client, and he asked me how much I would charge, I told him the amount my wife told me to ask for. He said, ‘You know what, that’s fine. Do you want me to write a check right now?’”
