Shok-1 is a British artist based in London. Shok-1 holds a degree in Applied Chemistry and is known for spraypainting walls around the world with his X-ray designs. He presents a diagnosis of life in the 21st century, which varies from the glowingly healthy to the pathological.

Shok-1’s artworks are a unique blend of street and science and resonate with a large number of people; from pop culture and street art fans to medical practitioners. X-rays are an extremely difficult subject for an artist to attempt to depict, with a multitude of layers of intricate detail. Shok-1 refrains from using tape or stencils, instead employing cutting-edge freehand techniques to create his X-ray aesthetic. Shok-1 is pro-science, championing Rationalism despite the rise of anti-intellectualism. After the explosion of street culture in the USA in the early 1980s, Shok-1 was one of the pioneers of the movement in Europe and over the course of his 40-year career, the artist has continued to reinvent his work and take risks.
