Meet Cainnon, one of our Atlanta store Display Artists, who over the next two weeks will be giving us an inside look into the daily life of being a display artist at a store opening. Get ready Fort Worth, we're coming for you!
Hey, y'all! My name is Cainnon and I live in Atlanta, GA with my wife Kiki, our four cats (Ghost, #2, Harry D, & Twiggy) and our two chickens (Purdy & #3). I have been with Urban since 2007 and I am currently a Display Artist at their Atlanta store.
My background is in photography, faux painting, and sculpture. I always wanted a job that would allow me to design freely and construct my ideas with my own hands. Plus, I get to listen to slow jamz like Lenny Williams, Al Green and the Isley Brothers in my workshop.
The best thing about my job is traveling to new places and seeing old faces. I’ve met some of my best friends through the company. I love the culture of Urban and the DIY attitude that we get to approach our day to day projects with. I especially like when things don’t go as planned and shit gets weird.
Outside of work, I love to be outdoors. Rock climbing, hiking, camping, waterfall jumping, tree chopping, woodworking, knife sharpening, gun shooting, grilling, gardening, antiquing, fire pitting, tiki bar lounging and some occasional dancing are what my weekends are like.
I look forward to sharing my adventures of the Fort Worth store opening with y'all! Follow me on Instagram for more updates @Cainnon.
