Hijack is a prodigy in his own right and one of the most talked-about, up and coming artists in today’s contemporary art scene. Hijack’s works are a revelation in street art - imaginative, brilliantly constructed and seen in cultural hot spots all over the globe, from Los Angeles to London. As he’s evolved as an artist, Hijack has crafted a persona, inspired by the spirit of music and the poetry of everyday life.
Based in Los Angeles, Hijack started as an underground street artist, silently stenciling the streets at night. He targeted Los Angeles’ most heavily trafficked areas - from the hikers in Runyon Canyon to the tourists of Melrose Avenue. Hijack’s popular Cat series features iconic, elegant black cats stenciled throughout the streets of the city. These feline silhouettes are Hijack’s signature mark, which he also uses to sign the backs of his art works. Whether his work was on display for an hour, or a month, Hijack creates moments of serenity and introspection for LA’s fast-paced culture.
