KCAC Artist Lifestyle is returning this week with local artist, designer and mural magician Sike (@sikestyle). We imagine that many of you have happened across many of Sike’s work throughout the KC area on your afternoon strolls or while driving through the city. His bright, graphic style murals can be seen on walls from the Boulevard all the way up and throughout the Westport area and beyond.
Sike earned his BFA in Photography from the Kansas City Art Institute, and for the past 15 years, has run his successful art business Sike Style Industries while working full-time as a designer for the Kansas Life Science Research Center at the University of Kansas Medical Center. His creative practice includes fine art paintings, 2D design on walls and print graphics. His love of street art and graffiti has led him to community engaged projects as a muralist. Murals allow Sike to transform bland or vandalized surfaces with colorful, positive and uplifting imagery that inspire pride in the nearby communities. On the long list of walls you may see some of his awarded commissions from: Qdoba Restaurants, the Kansas City Art in the Loop foundation & the Kansas City Royals.
Be sure to follow Sike on his KCAC Instagram story starting tomorrow Thursday, May 18th – Tuesday, May 23rd!
