Skor

Skor is mostly known for his affiliation with Ahuntsic’s SIK crew (alongside Shok, Narc and Tuna), but he also represents crews TBK (with Kemt, Sewk) and ITS (from Chicago). He returned to graffiti in 2013 after a break of about 10 years. He quickly gained the respect of his peers and of fans through his dedication to his art and his incredible talent. This made it possible for him to organise unofficial graffiti jams such as the Silver Beach jam from October 2015. He constantly experiments with style and has evolved considerably since his return to the scene. He is also incredibly prolific, as evidenced in the photo gallery below which shows just a fraction of what he has given us since mid-2014.

To view much more than what is shown here, you should check out Skor’s Instagram and Flickr pages or this feature on Bombing Science. Skor is also featured in this February 2016 interview with the SIK crew published at Mook-Life.

Skor est surtout connu pour son affiliation avec le SIK crew d’Ahuntsic (aux côtés de Shok, Narc et Tuna), mais il représente aussi les crews TBK (avec Kemt et Sewk) et ITS (de Chicago). Il est revenu au graffiti en 2013 après une pause d’une dizaine d’années. Grâce à son dévouement envers son art et son incroyable talent il a rapidement gagné le respect de ses pairs et des amateurs de graffiti. Ceci l’aide surement lorsqu’il organise des jams non-officiels tels que le Silver Beach jam d’octobre 2015. Skor expérimente continuellement avec le style de ses pièces et a ainsi évolué considérablement depuis son retour à la scène du graf. Il est aussi extrêmement prolifique, tel que démontré dans la galerie-photo ci-dessous qui ne montre qu’une fraction de ce qu’il a créé depuis l’été 2014.

Pour en voir beaucoup plus que ce qui est présenté ici, jetez un coup d’oeil aux pages Instagram et Flickr de Skor, ou ce profil photo chez Bombing Science. Il est aussi possible d’en apprendre un peu sur l’artiste via cette entrevue avec le SIK crew publié chez Mook-Life en février 2016.
