About the artist: 

Sickboy is one of the leading artists to emerge from Bristol’s infamous graffiti scene to worldwide recognition. Exploring form, shape and colour collide, humorous character based interventions create abstract and absurd realities in various media. In recent years, his work has migrated to digital space, challenging the bounds of our comprehension as concepts transition through physical space, medium and time.

With a legacy that reaches back to 1995, Sickboy was first recognised for his symbology and text based work on the streets of Bristol. The iconic red and yellow street logo ‘The Temple’ as well as his ‘Save the Youth’ slogan have featured on walls and wheelie bins across the world. From these crude canvases, Sickboy has developed a fine studio practice exploring paint on canvas, sculpture and layered digital labyrinths. His groundbreaking London solo exhibition in 2008 was followed by an appearance in the Oscar nominated ‘Exit Through the Gift Shop’, with audacious stunts – including the caged heart installation dropped outside the Tate Modern – keeping him at the centre of discussion. In 2015, Sickboy established Fluorescent Smogg, a fine art production house realising groundbreaking immersive exhibitions and editions with their team of master craftsmen, technicians and designers.
