Plastic Jesus grew up in the London Suburbs. (UK). After a brief career in engineering he pursued his life long passion to become a photojournalist. During a highly productive and eventful career that took to him to around 50 countries, covering world news events including war, civil unrest, crime, natural disasters and entertainment he became increasing frustrated by the selective focus of mainstream media. He turned his visual skills to street art as a way tackling issues he felt passionate about using his experience as an image maker and story teller to create bold, emotive art.

With a mix of stenciled acrylic spray images and surreal oversized & often controversial installations that both amaze and amuse, his work combines humor, irony, criticism and unique opinion to create art that engages on many levels.

Often questioning the norms in society Plastic Jesus confronts our compliance of culture and current affairs. The artist uses scale and contradiction as a means to highlight issues and opinions that often go unquestioned.
The aesthetic appeal of his work combined with the engagement produces an addictive mix that challenges our acceptance.

Worldwide appreciation for his work has grown organically but at a incredible pace, he is now one of the most talked about street artists having gained international media attention for a number of high profile pieces including his March 2015 Cocaine snorting oscar statue, his “No Kardashian Parking” signs placed around Hollywood in April 2015 and 2013 Best Buys useless plastic box 1.2.
His work has gained the attention of street art lovers and mainstream media including the BBC, CNN NY POST, NY Daily News, LA Times, Huffington post, Time, People Magazine , TMZ, and many more.

    AsharSeo Thank you for the good critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a book from our local library but I think I’ve learned better from this post. I am very glad to see such fantastic information being shared freely out there. Best Fb Status On Friendship
