Toonpunk is a political cartoonist, comic book artist, animator and painter. His love of comics and cartoons is a childlike theme that runs through his artworks but often with depth that implies a sinister dystopian life underneath. Toonpunk has emerged from the underground punk scene to become a recognised figure within London's art world. He has exhibited in Barcelona and Berlin as well as having worked with established galleries and art fairs in London. His most recent works merge analogue and digital techniques to create an aesthetic of serendipitous perfection that mirrors his imperfect psychedelic existence trapped in a digitally sanitised world.
