Combining razor fine detail and the art of the spray can, come SNIK; a UK based street art duo working on walls worldwide.
Biography / Snik
UK based stencil artist duo known for their signature high level realism through hand cut layered stencils.
Initially inspired by the Graffiti scene, Snik has been working with stencil and spray can for 10 years now. Constantly pushing the boundaries, this artist duo has developed a unique style which is equally captivating on walls as it in on canvas.
Staying true to their form, Snik hand cuts up to nine layers of stencil at a time, working with different mediums, techniques, paints and varnishes. Regardless of size, the level of detail is insane, and use of colours and forms, inspirational. Snik have developed an intense and bold aesthetic which has come to define their style. Portraits are shown emerging from darkness in a gradient of vivid colours. The intensity is created by the composition, often portraying frozen moments of dynamic action, the engaging stare of the subject, or a theatrical play of light. It is this almost Caravaggesque contrast of light and dark.
