about us


Hailing from the Green Mountains of Vermont but residing in the Bay Area of California, Silas Cole is an artist of several directions. After years of painting sunglasses as Playa gifts, Nice Shades was established in the Fall of 2018. Since then, Silas has expanded to paint hats, cell phone cases, snowboard helmets, holiday ornaments, and other accessories. If you have something in mind that you'd like painted, reach out and I'll make it happen.

You can find us at many festivals and concerts, or shop our current inventory here whenever you like.

Silas has also recently expanded into website design and social media management. If you have a project you need help with, please get in touch.
