Hijack, born in 1992, is the alter ego of a young street artist prodigy, known for his works as a revelation in street art. Hijack’s style is imaginative, brilliantly constructed, and seen in cultural hot spots around the world. Hijack has crafted a persona, inspired by the spirit of music and the poetry of everyday moments, that creates colorful and meaningful perspectives on life. Based in Los Angeles, Hijack started as an underground street artist, silently stenciling the streets at night. In April 2013, Hijack took the UK art scene by storm with his gallery debut at the prestigious Mead Carney fine art gallery on Dover Street in London. The show was so highly anticipated that it sold out and extended, showcasing ‘Never too Young to Dream Big’ and ‘Perfection is False’. After his positive reviews in the gallery world, Hijack took to the street, spraying a stencil of ‘Never too Young to Dream Big’ in London, where it quickly caught the attention of UK news outlets, social media and websites. The Mead Carney exhibition garnered buzz and Hijack’s landmark debut was featured in Art of England’s June 2013 issue, Huffington Post UK, The Art Newspaper, and The Telegraph. In October of 2013, Hijack was invited, along with Mr. Brainwash, to do an exhibit at the Dieresis Cultural Center in Guadalajara, Mexico. The exhibit was extended for months as it was attracting large crowds, drawing a mass of media attention, and delighting international art collectors and audiences. 2014 proved to be an incredible year for Hijack, propelling his meteoric rise within the contemporary art scene. In June, Hijack mounted a solo show at Galerie Moretti & Moretti, one of Paris’s top contemporary galleries, entitled ‘Life Through Street Art’. In November 2014, Hijack had an exhibition at Japan’s Gallery 21. The Gallery 21 show created an avalanche of press for Hijack, including a feature in Vogue Japan. In addition to his gallery shows and solo street art installations, Hijack also collaborates with other internationally-renowned street artists, including New York’s Cope and Japan’s Dragon 76. In early 2015, Hijack continued to his international art exhibitions with a show at the Artvera’s Gallery in Gstaad, Switzerland at the Gstaad Palace Hotel, done in partnership with Swiss watchmaker, Hublot. The winter setting was the perfect place for Hijack’s stark, bold, and colorful pieces. Thirty of the featured works were debuted at the vibrant and dramatic art show that carved Hijack’s name into art fame. While his artwork was being exhibited in Switzerland, Hijack’s works were also on display at the Wall Street Gallery in Beverly Hills for a group show, ‘Revolution’. The Wall Street Gallery show contained several of Hijack’s most captivating works including, ‘You can mimic the result but not the creativity’. In 2016, Hijack created a limited edition series of skateboards in collaboration with other contemporary artists such as Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, and John Baldessari. Hijack’s exhibitions have been sensational and brought fresh energy to 2017 ArtMiami and Art Palm beach. For Hijack, art is a lifestyle, and a passion. His signature style, steeped in positivity presents a refreshing future for the next generation of contemporary artists and activists.
