Sometimes, at school, when forced to write about themes and concepts and underlying meanings of books and movies in English/Literature, didn't you just want to say "Actual cool story!" and leave it there? (ie: Is it possible for you to watch Blade Runner without essay themes popping into your mind-tank?)

That's kind of how we feel about Sickboy's art. It is awesome and anybody who can see can see that.

Bristol-based artist Sickboy studied Fine Art and has been decorating the streets since the mid-'90s. He's also credited as one of the first street artists to identify himself with a logo, rather than a tag.

Sickboy's a lot more than just a logo though; his work has drawn on influences as widely reaching as Renaissance era paintings, Surrealist automatism and Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Picasso, architecture by Gaudi, and – we'd be inclined to believe – a lot, lot more.

His work is bright and warped and super colourful. It's a little abstract, a little surreal and a little psychedelic. Basically, it's columns A through X, and has been described as "neo-psychedelic-cosmic-abstract-expressionism" which is more thoughtful than "Actual cool paintings!"
