Snik is a street art duo that’s been working with stencil and spray paint for over ten years after initially being inspired to create art following the explosion of the graffiti scene in the UK.
Staying true to their form, Snik hand-cut up to nine layers of stencils at a time, working with different mediums, techniques, paints and varnishes. Their ethereal compositions combine realism and fantasy with the theatrical play of light and shadow to depict characters suspended in time. These frozen scenes tell stories of the everyday and the beauty that is found there, but it is Snik’s attention to detail and their bold aesthetic that has most come to define their signature style.
This theatricality is taken to new heights in their latest body of Baroque-inspired artworks, which feature increasingly ornate and extravagant compositions, presented for the first time at Nuart Festival 2018.
