SNK Auto Body and Hydraulics is a family oriented business that has been servicing the California Central Valley for over 30 years . Steven Burk (owner operator), has established his work in the Lowrider community in the Central Valley and his clientele has now expanded beyond Central California. Lowriders tell a story and at their core, lowriders are a vital expression of personal and cultural identity. This most notably holds true in Chicano/Chicana (or Mexican American) communities. . Steven has embraced his heritage and expressed the Latino culture in his work to continue the Lowrider Tradition.
Steve was a young boy when he fell in love with the kandy paints, pin strips, and patterns. "I want to do that", is what he told his dad...and so it began. He painted his first lowrider bike at the age of 8, then he went on to paint his first car at the age of 10 at his dads paint & body shop. Steve watched and learned how to tape and lay out different patterns. At the age of 18 he got his first job at a paint & body shop where he learned the different techniques of painting. In 2002, Steve opened SNK Auto Body & Hydraulics and the rest is history. Steve has made a name for himself in the lowrider community, and is now in an 8,000 sq ft shop where he creates some of his best work.
