Describing himself as an Urban Pop Artist, he is inspired by music, pop songs in particular, and every artwork is directly related to a song, an artist, or both. British mixed-media artist Mr. Sly creates bold graphic images offering a contemporary slant on 20th Century popular culture. Born in Liverpool Mr. Sly went on to travel widely. This gave him a love of urban and street art from all over the world which informed his own creative path as well as broadened his cultural horizons. His first foray into the art world was inspired by the 1980s band Frankie Goes to Hollywood and their iconic t-shirts from their hit song Relax. As he became more interested in art for its own sake, he discovered Andy Warhol and Salvador Dali who became hugely influential on his evolution as a young artist. 20 years later his work is featured in galleries across the UK, Europe, and the US, and recent clients include Chelsea Football Club, L’Oreal, and Redken. He has been featured widely in the media and made an impact on the celebrity circuit with Paris Hilton, David Haye, and Adee Phelan among his collectors.
