Spaceship Zulu has emerged on the Kansas City street art scene as a gritty, street-smart artist who has successfully crossed over from his street art origins, on to the gallery circuit. In a few fast-paced years, he has swiftly risen to become one of the top up and coming artists in Kansas City. His works range widely in style but celebrate the new wave of street art happening across the world.
Spaceship Zulu started doing graph on the streets of Wichita back in 2005 as a member of the Bomb the City Crew (BTC), with the homies EPEK and INC. He was first inspired to start doing graph and art again on a trip to KC visiting friends one weekend. He was taken aback by all of the beautiful street art and graffiti in the urban landscape of The Crossroads and The West Bottoms. Now, his work is displayed prominently in those same locations next to some of the same artists that first inspired him starting out. He is part of the larger Kansas City street art scene and still runs with a crew when painting from time to time in Kansas Cities famous Artist Alley.
From the start, Zulu has used stencils in elements of his works, but by 2013 he had turned fully to the art of stenciling for large works. He soon became more widely noticed for his mural work around the area, and since has done solo, group and collaborative shows in multiple galleries throughout the city.
