Biography / Snik

Snik is an artist duo based in Stamford, UK. Specialising in hand-cut stencil art. As two of the most progressive artists of their kind, SNIK joined URBAN NATION in projects like HKWalls in Hong Kong, Mural Madness, and also has a ONE WALL. Snik are also part of the class of 2018 in the URBAN NATION Artist in Residence Programme.

Despite of digital techniques, Snik as a male and female partnership always remained true to the origins of their craft with complex, multi-layered and hand cut stencils. The commitment to the discipline’s heritage and their aesthetic of frozen scenes of dynamic action makes their work instantly recognisable. Their art focuses on the conventional and commonplace, such as tangled strands of hair or the textures and folds found on certain fabrics. Their focus on the ordinary elevates the subtle aspects to hint a deeper meaning. Snik’s purpose is to tell stories of the everyday and the beauty that is found here. For over a decade, the duo has been working across the globe, honing their skills to become one of the most advanced artists of their kind.
