Hampton, Virginia based artist Silas Baker is a painter and muralist who has been heavily influenced by street art and traditional graffiti. His preferred medium when working on a large scale is spray paint but when working on canvas or smaller, he prefers to use textured mediums and acrylic.

Silas has been an artist since an early age and grew up watching his father paint motorcycles and sign paint. He was influenced by the skateboard culture in the 80’s and 90’s and from there began to notice the art that went along with it. He began painting abstract art heavily in the early 90’s and it has been a large part and passion of his art career ever since. Silas tattooed professionally for 16 years and built an extensive clientele. In early 2020 he began to follow a different path and focus more on his abstract art. He is often commissioned for large wall murals, furniture painting, and illustration.
Silas is mostly self-taught with no formal training other than completing an apprenticeship to learn how to become a professional tattoo artist.

Silas’ artwork was selected to appear on a Norfolk Arts Adams Outdoor Billboard in 2024. Watch for billboards popping up soon in the Norfolk regional coverage area. You can also see Silas live painting at the NEON Festival on Magazine Lane October 19 & 20. Visit Colonial Iron Gym in Williamsburg to see his latest mural or view Silas’ mural on their Facebook page.
