Paul Insect has made a huge name for himself in the art world working alongside Banksy at the London Cans Festival and for his exhibition ‘Bullion’ at the Lazarides Gallery.


Paul Insect’s sharp-edged images combine all the absurdism of Dada with the sleekness of modernism, yielding surreal renderings that point playfully at the deep dark underbelly of adult life.

In the 1990s, Insect became known for his witty stencil and spray painted works, before transitioning to the gallery scene with color-drenched canvases which teetered precariously between tradition and something far more messed up. Never before has chaos been channeled in such clean lines. His images are provoking yet light-hearted and demand a sense of morality that transcends common acceptance.
