Kinetik Ideas AKA Anthony Padilla

Sacramento, CA

Working under the name Kinetik Ideas, Padilla’s laid color on the horizons of Sacramento since the ’90s. Often times he wakes up to paint one mural and is seen finishing another in the evening. A Sacramento native who’s watched the flux in graffiti and aerosol art through the years, Padilla sees murals as opportunities not only to make the city’s surroundings more colorful, but also to encourage independent thought. “I’m all for big art outside,” he says. “I’ve been doing graffiti for 22 years and there was a time where you couldn’t paint on walls. Now, it’s just become more accepted. As time goes on, people accept things because true art doesn’t go away.”
