Raheem Saladeen Johnson aka KING SALADEEN is a self taught artist who was born and raised in West Philadelphia. I first came across him at Art Basel in Miami back in 2014 – he stood out, although that is not hard to do when you’ve been commissioned to paint a Lamborghini. Yep – you read that right.
Imagine walking into a party at the already exclusive Lou La Vie where you are surrounded by countless rare and exotic cars – only to see King Saladeen himself, painting away on the hood of a Lamborghini. It doesn’t get more Miami that that.
Clearly this is not your average artist, and for that very reason he is becoming well known in the fashion scene. His every day canvas can be anything from a Hermes Birkin bag (price range $12,000 to $223,000) to the oh so exclusive Yeezys and even a Rolls Royce!
So how much does it cost to have Saladeen custom paint something for you? Word is that his prices start at $2,000. It’s no wonder celebrities and fashionista’s are going crazy over his talent. There is nothing quite like making something that is already exclusive, even more exclusive.
