About Mike “Dream” Francisco:
Dream rose to fame in the “graffiti” world in the late ‘80s and ‘90s with his artwork in Oakland, CA. He is internationally known for his “graffiti” style that connects art and social justice. Through his life, Dream has inspired many in all age groups, cultures, and nationalities, conveying messages about social consciousness, community, and pride in culture and history on the “West Coast” and regions beyond.
