Dutch artist FAKE, lives and works in Amsterdam. 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 has a very clean and precise imagery. His colorful work, which uses icons of the every day poplife, is provokative, with a good dose of humour and a sharp ironic twist. FAKE tells stories, putting the finger on issues, without being finger pointing. He has been in shows all over the world; from Holland, Germany, Norway, Denmark and the UK, the US and Iran.
