Men Making Moves in 2017: Artist, Designer, Kaliefs Kanvas

Kaliefs Kanvas

“My mission is to make you the focal point when you walk into a room…” 

If you love the jean jacket pictured above, you should go over to my guy Kaliefs Kanvas’s website and purchase one. That’s correct, it was hand made, with paint! 

Hailing from Chicago, IL, Kaliefs Kanvas is more than a brand; it is a lifestyle and a personality. The 20 year old artist fell in love with art and fashion in grade school and as a teenager, he found a unique way to combine them.

 “There is not a limit to what I will paint.”

From murals and graffiti to reinventing a person’s wardrobe, this young man’s talent is as long as the Magnificent Mile (did you see what I did there? No? Aw damn).  Kalief Kanvas says he hates thinking inside of the box, and when he designs, he does it for extraordinary thinkers; the people who would rather be outside of the crowd than in it.

“Your appearance is what you are judged by and I am here to design a style that defines you. Something no one has, but everyone wants.” 







As featured in Truestar Magazine, Kalief Kanvas has worked with celebrities such as Chicago rapper Lil Herb, Tyler Ulis of the NBARavyn Lenae of Atlantic Records, Cole Bennett & many more. I have purchased a few pieces from this young mogul myself. He is the epitome of dope, and truly one of the Men Making Moves in 2017. If you are looking for something uniquely brilliant, or you have an idea you can’t quite bring to life on your own, contact this hard working college kid – he will get you right. Tell him JIMMY sent you.
