Muralist. Street Artist. Art Advocate.
Shek Vega is a 20 year veteran of the street art scene, with his beginnings seeded in graffiti art. As the years progressed he soon became interested in fine art and began molding his style to become a hybrid of the two. Today, he is well known and sought after for his signature filigree and owns three celebrated companies that pioneer street and mural art as well as artist advocacy. To date, he has aided in the creation of over a hundred pieces of public art and has raised over 40K for non-profits, charities and art organizations.
His personal art is grounded in humor and pop culture, usually depicting a commentary on his chicano roots or the zeitgeist of the moment. Known for its clean lines and brilliant use of color, Shek Vega has become one of Texas’ most sought after muralists and artists gaining him elite clientele and collectors from around the world.
Gravelmouth was founded in 2010 and has served as a leader in the Texas contemporary art scene advocating for street art as a fine art. At the core of its mission, the cultural pioneer strives to educate the public about the genre of street art and curate shows breaking out emerging or undiscovered artists within its walls. This award winning gallery has gained itself many notable features in publications for its modern and elevated spirit and continues to receive praise for its pioneering concept and its continual contributions to its community and mission. To many, Gravelmouth Gallery is a career milestone marker, with many street and contemporary artists using its platform as a career accelerator.
Los Otros is Shek Vega’s mural company where he paints with long time friend, Nik Soupe. Founded in 2014, these two Texas artists have rapidly grown this company to become Texas’ go-to for high quality, professional mural work. Painting together twenty years prior to forming Los Otros Murals, the two artists perfected their signature skillsets, and then, juxtaposed them together to create the easily recognized Los Otros style fans love and adore today. With Nik Soup’s unparalleled black and white portrait painting and Shek’s highly acclaimed design work, clean lines and brilliant use of color, Los Otros murals have found homes with elite collectors, galleriest, museums, independent businesses, large corporations, celebrities, politicians and high profile individuals. Between the two of them, they offer over thirty years of experience to their clientele and continue to lead the way, setting the precedent for fine mural work and street art.
