Artist Bio

Growing up on the South Side of Chicago, surrounded by urban art and public murals,Rahmaan Statik became inspired to be involved with the subculture of Street Art. A consequent arrest for “vandalism” put him on a mission to legitimize the production of aerosol murals. This became the main focus of my work: public murals that fuse the graffiti aesthetic with a classical training received from the American Academy of Art. As co-founder of R.K Design, a graphic arts and mural collective, Statik have produced over 400 murals, received mural commissions for corporate clients such as Coca Cola, Toyota, The village of Rosemont, and Red Bull. Statik have also produced illustrations, brand identity, print projects for Frank 151 magazine, Argus brewery, and the Chicago Jazz Fair . Through the Chicago Public Art Group, as well as After School Matters, since 2004 to 2016 Statik have instructed children in mural painting techniques, as well as mentored young artists in their craft. Statik currently works out of his studio in the Bridgeport Art Center in Chicago, where in addition to his mural and teaching career Statik also create art for gallery exhibitions using oil, acrylic, graphite, pen & ink, pastels, mosaic tile, found objects, spray paint and digital media. Rahmaan Statik currently creating street art in cities across the world, creating art works for museum and  gallery exhibitions.

Creative Liberation: Englewood community mural:
This project was developed, and funded by the Englewood Safety network. Working with the Englewood Safety network, I developed the mural design with a team community youth the a number of critiques and meetings. From these meetings I gathered the key points of our conversations, and created an illustration. From this the illustration was then projected and painted on the wall by the community youth. I then finalized and finished the under painting, completing it into a comprehensive, museum quality community mural. The mural is located on 67th and Ashland.
