Duke paints on discarded windows he salvages or that people give him. Applying paint to the back of the piece of glass he works in reverse of the conventional method, starting with dark lines and highlights first and adding background layers last. Duke is also a multi-instrumentalist and poet and one of a fast fading breed of San Francisco street artist and maker.
