The internationally renowned artists SNIK combine hand-cut multilayer stencils with ethereal portraits from a male / female double perspective. This traditional, progressive ethos approach has led the duo to be commissioned for walls around the world. Away from the city streets, the couple has been recognized by urban and contemporary art collectors in recent years, thanks to rare releases that can take up to a year to produce - the smaller scale and complexity of layered stencil work requires incredible precision and careful compositional thinking.
The yield has proven to be more than worth it for buyers who crave the aesthetics of spilling, tangled hair and liquid substances: a modern study of sensitivities. It is the questioning, accepting narrative that SNIK pursues, which has caught the attention of both critics, art lovers and collectors.
