The Brithis street artist Stik, internationally known, was born in Hackey (East London) in 1979. Of his private life, other than the fact that he is a self-taught artist and lived in homeless shelters for years, nothing is known. His career began when, in his early twenties, he began painting unofficial, socially conscious murals on the side walls of buildings in his hometown. Stik's style is simple, and his stylized characters come to life from the union of elements such as dots, lines, and circles and the use of an essential palette of black and white, sometimes accompanied by garish solid colors. Despite their simplicity, through his works Stik conveys powerful messages and deals with important issues, such as the rights of the LGBTQ+ community, homelessness, and the destruction of public housing. The works of Stik have been featured in important collaborations, including those with Amnesty International and the Reclaim the Streets collective. Today his walls can be seen in Europe, America, and Asia, and his works are increasingly rare and coveted by collectors.
