SNIk - Emmaline print Main edition of 50 - Hand finished - Copie.jpeg

 

 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 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. Showing in galleries, shows and forums across the globe, they had their inaugural solo show in 2011, and now has a serious following of admirers and collectors worldwide.

Rather than an elaborate narrative, SNIK seek to elevate the subtle and often unremarkable details of a single moment; tangled strands of hair, folds and textures of fabrics. It is this focus which has come to define their work.
