In 2011, Stik had a solo show at Imitate Modern Gallery in the London's West End. In 2012, he worked in Dulwich, southeast London, as featured by Dulwich Picture Gallery, where he recreated Old Master paintings in his own style. He collaborated with Ingrid Beazley of Dulwich Picture Gallery to recreate traditional pictures on the streets of Dulwich. This led to further street artists including Conor Harrington, MadC, Mear One, Thierry Noir, Nunca, Phlegm, Reka One, Remi Rough and System, and ROA, becoming involved to form the Dulwich Outdoor Gallery of street art around the Dulwich area in 2013.
