Known for his ‘Save the Youth‘ slogan, Sickboy’s humorous work contributes to the development of the British street art movement. He is one of the first UK artists to use a logo instead of a tag. His red and yellow street logo, known as ‘The Temple,’ can be seen everywhere —on walls and among garbage cans worldwide.

Sickboy has became one of the biggest examples of street art in UK history.
He moved to London in 2007 and quickly created numerous works of art far away from the walls of his city. The exhibition at the world-famous Tate Gallery in London was his first solo show worldwide. He made his debut in the U.S. with an exhibition entitled Wonder Club in San Francisco. The show aimed to explore that “mental territory, where the fun side meets the cryptic graffiti.”

Sickboy was originally trained in Fine Art and, as well as painting graffiti on the streets. He also paints on canvas and exhibits conventionally in art galleries. He has been painting street art since 1995.
His work hit the big screen recently in Banksy’s Oscar-nominated film, Exit Through the Gift Shop.
His temples, slogans and audacious stunts – including the caged heart installation dropped outside the Tate Modern in 2008 – have landed him global recognition.
