Combining impressive technical ability and an undeniable work ethic, Otautahi - based artist Dcypher has established himself as one of Aotearoa’s most respected urban artists. With a career spanning several decades and crossing continents, Dcypher’s versatility and adaptability has seen his work spread across various platforms, from commercial murals to illustration, design and education.
Dcypher has worked with global brands, including Converse, Heineken, Chevrolet and the Los Angeles Dodgers and painted for festivals and projects in locations including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami’s iconic Wynwood Walls, Dubai, Brazil, and throughout Aotearoa.
After a decade living in Los Angeles, where he became part of the legendary CBS crew, Dcypher returned home in 2019, quickly cementing his reputation with landmark murals under his XL Street Murals company, collaborative productions with his DTR Crew mates, and the establishment of Dcypher Apparel, an urban clothing line inspired by his love of skate culture.
While Dcypher has constantly expanded his creative practice throughout his career, his crisp, bold and clean illustrative style remains evident, the influence of graffiti and the urban environment clear, an acknowledgment and celebration of his artistic roots.
