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, a design focused mural company based in Kansas City, MO. After graduating from The Kansas City Art Institute in photography, his creative practice now includes large-scale murals, fine art paintings, and integrated brand marketing.
His love of street art and graffiti has led him to community and corporate projects, showcasing his desire to transform bland or vandalized surfaces with colorful uplifting images 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 product marketing, fan activations, offices, living and educational spaces.
Shafer has been awarded the 2017 KC Urban Hero Award and recent commissions from the One Percent for Art for Urban Youth Academy, the Kansas City Royals, Chiefs, SportingKC, Oakley, and has been featured in the Kansas City Collection.
In 2018, Shafer received an ArtsKC Inspiration Grant in conjunction with an international mural project in Kingston, Jamaica. Shafer hopes to continue expanding his style, brand and art to wish-list projects and international clients.
