FAKE was born in Amsterdam, in 1980.

He is a self-taught graffiti and street artist, started experimenting and combining styles early on to come to a unique signature.

His work is full of color and has been in shows all over the world; from Holland, Norway, Denmark, United Kingdom, United States and  Iran.

Stencils give him the power to use any image on any desired background and give it a humorous or ironic twist. One of his most iconic works, FAKE love, tells the story of how love can hurt. Seeing people around him being heartbroken, inspired him to make this artwork.

He's Amsterdam’s most known stencil artist, both on the streets and on canvas.
