Artist Profile

Hometown: Tokyo

Based in: Tokyo

As a pioneer among Japanese graffiti writers, Snipe1 has been active since the dawn of Japan’s graffiti scene and later threw himself into the graffiti world of early 1990s New York during his teenage years. Since then, he has travelled to various countries establishing connections with graffiti communities all around the world, before finally returning to Japan. Upon moving his base back to his homeland, Snipe1 has dedicated himself to being a missionary for Japanese graffiti culture, contributing to the rise of the culture through his various efforts in the underground scene. Snipe1’s graffiti draws upon the sensibility of street culture but incorporates an edge of “dirtiness” that lends to an unmistakable individual style. By pushing the boundaries, he continuously dares to toe the danger of breaking stereotypes.

In recent years, the artist has engaged in a variety of projects, including collaborations with famous fashion brands as well as participation and collaborated in the artistic production of works by TAKASHI MURAKAMI and MADSAKI. Snipe1 also exhibited at Murakami's Hidari Zingaro Gallery and participated in the world's largest urban art exhibition “Beyond the Street” in both Los Angeles and New York alongside Madsaki, Takeshi Murakami and TengaOne. Snipe1 has proved himself to be in the forefront of Asian Urban Contemporary Art.
