Stik is a graffiti street artist based in London, England. He is known for painting large stick figures throughout streetscapes of many countries, especially in London (UK), Utsira (Norway), Union Square (New York) and Jabal Al Qalaa (Jordan). Each location is carefully considered, and many are regularly revisited and maintained. The English street artist was born in the mid-1980s. With no formal art education, he learned from other street artists, in particular Doze and Zomby. Creating cunningly simple lines and shapes that echo the naïve drawings of children the world over. The seemingly lost and forlorn figures featured in his art prints could reflect Stik himself and his experience of homelessness. Perhaps it’s his way of making sure these characters have a home. He has stated, “My pieces are about moving through the cityscape and feeling insecure.”
