Darrin Grandmason Answers the YabYum Seven

Remarkably, humans share a lot of DNA with other animals, plants and microorganisms. Primates top the list, but did you know we share 51% of our DNA with the Fruit Fly?

This close relationship was not lost on Darrin Grandmason. Darrin is the Founder and CEO of DNA on a Shirt, and is currently creating the world’s first affordable, wearable genetic art and is using the sales to help save the world’s most endangered species.

Darrin, this “founding father of genetic art” as dubbed by Newsweek Magazine, is taking on the YabYum Seven…

Yes, that is a brass knuckles cell phone case.

I was doing a study for genetics and I swabbed my dog and ran his DNA fingerprint and created the first art piece
