Discovered by Robertson Fine Art Director Gordon Robertson in Late 2019, We are delighted to now be working with Mr Controversial. His debut Collection has been many many months in the making. We had originally hoped to launch with a physical showcase but with the dreaded Covid 19 forcing us to stay home we have planned a digital launch for Saturday 11th April 2020. Keep your eyes on this guy - big things lie ahead for him we are sure.
'My mission as a Fine Artist is to create work that reflects the humorous character traits we can all relate to, born out of our current popular culture in today's digital age. Each piece should be instantly relatable to the viewer, as if you have stumbled upon something that hits the nail on the head of your own everyday life, making the ordinary extra ordinary & hilariously absurd.
My aim is to make the viewer chuckle at the controversial nature of my work calling *B*U*L*L*S*H*I*T* on, and poking fun at Millennials and their ‘first world problems’ our digitised generation obsess over, from lifestyle choices, dating, fear of gluten to Social Media fame.
I use striking imagery distilled from vintage fiction and advertising, once relegated to the past in order to intrigue and entertain a generation of today.
Mr. Controversial is a 30 something London based Artist who; transforms vintage imagery relegated to the past and brings it back to life with oil paint and relatable captions that tell comical, satirical and sometimes dark stories.'
