Many people may feel a deeper calling in this life, but not everyone will dare to just go after it.
In 2005, Charlie Green salvaged some paint, some canvas and took a shot at selling his art work on the streets of his hometown in Toronto Canada. The art work he made sold, just like the others would on his first trip to New York later in 2007. By 2009, committed to his dream to support himself from his own work, he left Canada and immersed himself into the thriving culture of New York city.
