He received his BFA in painting from Jackson State University in 1999, a BFA in Fashion Design and Marketing from American InterContinental University in 2001, and a Masters of Fine Arts from SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) in 2013. For eight years he worked as a kindergarten educator for Atlanta Public Schools, and he spent three years as a Middle School Visual Arts teacher for DeKalb County Schools. Currently, he works as an Art Instructor for Fulton County Arts & Culture.  Bishop is constantly creating meaningful images using multiple mediums such as collage, photography, acrylics, pastels, watercolors, charcoal and more. Meanwhile, he finds his inspiration reading books, watching documentaries and his everyday surroundings—from the students he teaches, to people he may encounter on the streets while traveling throughout the city of Atlanta.
