Josh Stika is distinctly known for his witty slogans, intense colour combinations and striking use of typography. STIKA’s foray into art began with him ‘writing’ on the streets of London, inspired by some of the UK’s most prolific graffiti artists. Unprecedented for his genre, and based on just a street-art portfolio, Stika was offered a place at Central St Martins. This unusual combination of fine art and street training continues to distinguish STIKA’s work.
At just 23 years old Josh was enrolled as the creative director of London-based creative agency Monorex. Now working as a solo artist, Josh’s graffiti status is globally recognised and he has recently been featured in a 25-page main-feature retrospective and interview in Graphotism magazine, exhibited in Box Park, and enjoyed a three-month solo show at The Hoxton Hotel in London.
