FAKE (born 1980) is a dutch artist from Amsterdam. He has been doing graffiti and street art half his life. Growing up in a grey and boring environment, FAKE felt the urge to bring a smile on other people’s faces through irony and humor. After discovering the power of stencils, he was hooked. FAKE is self-taught and started experimenting and combining styles early on to come to a unique signature. FAKE’s work is some of the cleanest stuff around. His clean, taut work, full of color, has been in shows all over the world; from Holland, Norway, Denmark and the UK until the US and even countries as Iran.
