Who is Phantamos? His birth of origin; Lima, Peru but raised in Montreal by his biological mother. A child who loved to smile to know no sin, became his own man at very young age. Ethan Hunter began his journey to life when his father dishowned him at the age of 9. Like any other boy he started to rebel but soon later found maturity through a friend who mastered the art of discipline through Karate. Following in his footsteps, physical activities allowed him to move as freely as a bird just as much as his penmanship. Ethan loved to draw and he would do so anywhere he would see his vision to make it a reality. Sometimes he would foresee cryptic events and display it through his drawings and evoking powerful emotions to his family and friends.
Later in life, Ethan was introduced to photoshop CS3 in 2006 by his brother, at a moment where he almost lost his creative imagination..It was a blessing in disguise and innovation for greatness. He never looked back. In the mid year of 2012 he created an instagram account to showcase his skills on a platform popularized as a photo sharing app. Within 6 month after creating his account, his following grew in the thousands. Phantamos is no stranger to the instagram world or as he would call it..the matrix. Though he was brandishing his skills, Ethan was never satisfied, he felt something was missing. At this point the DSLR camera is his new paint brush as he grew curious with his a new fascination of chasing sunsets.
Reaching new heights; At this point Hunt was conditioning the mind, body and spirit over matter facing his fears. On February 2014, Ethan climbed his first crane approaching his steps with confidence and respect. The following day he went out scouting the tallest building in his area, made his way to the nearest staircase and to his discovery was a gated metal door with a letter combo lock, one level before the rooftop door. Turning one dial down unlocked the door to destiny...it was meant to be. At this point Ethan was on a quest to conquer his own fear and taking many risks as possible, this was a challenge for him and unfortunately these activities are illegal. He needed a name that would match his description fore his action are very stealth and under the radar...Phantamos was born. His adaptation as a nocturnal creature allowed him to plot his moves strategically to infiltrate his next mission with ease. Phantamos has infiltrated and gained access to many rooftops in the downtown financial district of toronto's core and surrounding city skyscrappers. He also went on exploring other city regions from Toronto's iconic sky scrappers, Mississauga's marilyn monroe buildings, Niagara Falls 8th wonder of the world, Burlington Skyway Bridge, Vaughan's Canada's Wonderland, The monumental Hindu temple (BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Toronto) to the Township of King's Bell Canada Tower. At this point a few others who came before him and after took notice and therefore became the purpose of envy and plagiarism.
Never one to feed into negativity. Ethan's will and determination to focus on his priority is primary to his goals. however he accepts it as motivation to add fuel to the fire within. With the recent launch release of iamphantamos.com this as allowed him to make it a profitable brand to his followers on instagram, whom always ask for prints of his work. With that alone this website was possible because of you, so he thanks you.
