Phil Shafer, aka Sike Style, channels his creative energy in many ways. For over 18 years, he has run his successful art business, Sike Style Industries. His creative practice 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. Murals allow Shafer to transform bland or vandalized surfaces with colorful, positive and uplifting imagery that inspire and create dialogue.
Shafer has been awarded the 2017 KC Urban Hero Award and commissions from the One Percent for Art for Urban Youth Academy, the Kansas City Art in the Loop foundation, the Kansas City Royals, Chiefs and has been a featured artist in the Open Spaces arts exhibition and 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.
