Eklipz is a supremely seasoned, multi-medium, locally-renowned artist based in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Often referred to as a modern day Renaissance artist, his work has already established an impactful presence throughout the community. Having grown up scribing the city streets in the early 90’s, his art still adorns the buildings of Hamilton with elegantly executed, colour-infused murals. Though his initial offerings were spawned by Hip Hop’s graffiti culture, his unquenchable thirst for growth in all areas of life pushed him to develop an eclectic and diverse style unlike any other.
