• Rex Dingler is a New Orleans native who believes that the will of the people is the force
of life, and that philosophy followed into his November, 2009 exhibit, The Dinglerization of America.
Heralded as a street artist who founded NoLA Rising, a project that delivered messages of hope
across New Orleans in post-Katrina months, Rex quickly spread his message of renewal,
rebirth and faith to over 30 countries.
• Rex has exhibited in New York and New Orleans and has been working to promote a mural
arts program for the Southeastern region of Louisiana. On occasion, he lectures at Tulane University
on the premise that street art can be a cultural basis for urban rejuvenation. He also works
to develop art education and therapy programs for those who have suffered under various
post traumatic stress disorder issues.
• Rex's street art roots have most recently been prominently mentioned in Untitled II: The
Beautiful Renaissance; an international street art book published in London. He has been the subject
of debate on numerous websites in New Orleans, New York and abroad, most notably in the Village Voice
and CultureBot in which he was deemed the leader of the largest contemporary arts movement in the
American South. His works have appeared in numerous publications, and stories featuring his story
have appeared in every type of media; details of which can be found in the following
publications: The Times-Picayune, The Gambit, City Business, Antigravity Culture Magazine,
CultureBot, Preservation in Print; The Trumpet, The Village Voice, MTV, and local television
stations WDSU and WWL.
