Born in 1989 Trik09 is a Sheffield-based graffiti writer since 2006. His work is heavily influenced by hip hop culture, the elements of graffiti and b-boying in-particular. His work stems from own take on letter forms, experimental background work, characters and close attention to colour combos.

He also takes a lot of inspiration from his childhood, cartoons, comics, Annie, movies, and pinup and Disney artwork. Trik09 is a part of the organisation Smash Proof working with young people within and out of his home town through hip hop, and also works on private commissions both physical and digital.
