Lemak is a self-taught urban street and gallery artist. Born in 1980, he is currently based in Bristol but originates from Fleetwood, UK. He was inspired to pick up a spray paint can by stencil artists such as Snik and Tank Petrol and started creating art in 2011.
He is developing a signature style of his own, merging the skills of his previous trade as a joiner with his artistic talents, and now specialises in reverse stencilling on glass. The lighting elements of the art bring out different features of the work, such as the intricate patterns of tattoos, in a distinct and unique way.
Much of Lemak’s art explores and captures the natural beauty caught in the eyes and expressions of the female form, while as a big sci-fi fan he uses modern technology and lighting distinctively combined to give his work a whole new perspective for the viewer.
He is continually developing new techniques and is now creating art-enhanced furniture under the brand name FunArtUre.
