SICKBOY (UK)

SICKBOY (UK)

Sickboy originally trained in Fine Art and, as well as painting graffiti on the street, he also paints on canvas and exhibits conventionally in art galleries. He has been painting street art since circa 1995.

A leading artist to emerge from Bristolʼs infamous graffiti scene, Sickboyʼs humorous work has 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' 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. His work hit the big screen recently in Banksyʼs Oscar-nominated film, Exit Through the Gift Shop, and he is tipped by the leading financial press as one of the movementʼs most bankable artists. His temples, slogans and audacious stunts – including the caged heart installation dropped outside the Tate Modern in 2008 – have landed him global recognition.

In a 2011 article The Guardian newspaper asked five international street artists to name their favourite artist; Sickboy was one of those interviewed .
