Sickboy is a street artist who emerged from Bristol’s famous graffiti scene and is recognised as one of the best street artists of our time. His identity may be unknown, but his humorous, colourful, neo-psychodelic artworks, are known around the globe.

The Bristol-native moved to London in 2007, where he took his art to the streets of the East End, particularly the boroughs of Shoreditch and Tower Hamlets. 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 last year – have landed him global recognition. Sickboy’s work has featured in countless worldwide Graffiti books and documentary films including Banksy’s Oscar-nominated exit through the gift shop, and in global and national TV, newspapers and magazines, including BBC London news, the Financial Times, The Independent, I-D and many more.
