RAPHAEL BLAKE

“The course really makes you think about your approach. When it comes to creativity and innovation and your thought processes, it has some great insights that you can use.”

A spoken word poet and visual artist, Raphael relocated to London from Nottingham to pursue his creative career. Tipped off by a friend about the Urban Artist School he didn’t miss the opportunity to get involved. Raphael has gone on to perform at Lovebox Festival with his work featured on the likes of Complex UK, Clash and Hunger TV. His song “Sweet Illusion” was selected as a BBC Introducing track. Since graduating from UAS, Raphael has also gone on to setup his own creative agency, It’s More Than Poetry.
