Phil Shafer, aka Sike Style, channels his creative energy in many ways. For 20 years, he has run his successful art business; Sike Style Industries. After graduating from the Kansas City Art Institute in photography, his creative practice now includes fine art paintings, 2D design and print graphics. His love of street art and graffiti has led him to community and corporate projects as a muralist. In 2017, Shafer was awarded the KC Urban Hero Award, showcasing his desire to transform bland or vandalized surfaces with colorful, positive and uplifting imagery that inspire and create dialogue. When working with clients, Shafer is able to blend his style with brand standards to create welcome and vibrant artwork for offices, living spaces and schools alike. Some of his recent projects include brand activations with Oakley, the Kansas City Chiefs, Royals, a One Percent for Art mural at the KC Urban Youth Academy and large-scale public murals.
