Sickboy is a leading artist to emerge from Bristol’s infamous graffiti scene. His humorous works have cemented his place in the upper echelons of the British street art movement. He is one of the first UK artists to use a logo in place of a tag, and his red and yellow street logo known as ‘The Temple’ and his Save the Youth slogan can be seen on walls and wheelie bins worldwide.
Sickboy has built up one of the largest bodies of street art works in UK history, which has led to him being tipped by the leading financial press as one of the movement’s most bankable artists. His major London solo show in 2008 and audacious stunts – including the caged heart installation dropped outside the Tate Modern – have landed him global recognition.
