What is TEKST?

TEKST (pronounced “text”) is a style of art that is made by warping, twisting and distorting words into the very thing they are describing.

TEKST designs are created using both cutting edge technology and old (nearly forgotten) techniques to create visual representations of powerful quotes. 

TEKST entered the scene by creating and selling a different original art piece every single day for a year. He has created book covers for bestselling books, music videos with major record labels, tour posters for multi Grammy winning artists, and hand painted a 3,000+ word mural onto a BMW M5.

Artwork by TEKST hangs in the homes of Stephen Colbert, Chuck Palahniuk, Gary Vaynerchuk, Jason Mraz, Alexis Ohanian, as well as fans across all 50 US States and over 30 countries around the globe. 

 

 

CURRENT PROJECTS

 

Beginning March 2017 Wordagami, the third major TEKSTartist project, will begin a massive effort to combine art and storytelling like never before. Each month a new limited edition TEKST print release will be released. All month leading up to the release of the next print the site will feature an in depth behind the scenes look from conception to completion.
