SNIK, a creative duo consisting of a male and a female artist, has been working across the globe, perfecting their skills. As stencil artists, SNIK are traditiona­lists. Where others have moved on to the digital techniques, using laser cutting and computers to support their work, SNIK have remained true to the origins of their craft. They hand-cut their complex multilayer­ed stencils. Their work is instantly recognizab­le, whether on a city wall or exhibited in a leading gallery. SNIK’s bold aesthetic is characteri­zed by frozen scenes of dynamic action. Their work focuses on the ordinary, such as tangled strands of hair or the folds and textures of fabrics. These subtle aspects are elevated to hint to a deeper meaning which nonetheles­s remains elusive, allowing the viewer to produce their own readings of each artwork. SNIK’s purpose is to tell stories of the everyday and the beauty that can found there. Their works are available through London-based JG Contempora­ry Gallery.
