BORTUSK LEER (UK)

Since bursting onto the art scene in 2007 Bortusk Leer’s happy, childish, neon artwork has been appearing and popping up on streets and gallery walls around the world. Their sole purpose is to brighten up the viewers’ day and put a smile on their face – brief encounters that distract us from the seriousness of life.

The self-proclaimed pioneer of ‘art-comedy’, Bortusk Leer’s philosophy is epitomised by his slogan: Cheer Up You Bastards.

Residing in Amsterdam but originally from the UK, Bortusk Leer has exhibited in galleries around the world. His brightly coloured, painted monsters occupy walls, windows, doors and electricity boxes wherever he can find them – and wait patiently to surprise the next unsuspecting member of the public.
