ABOUT THE ART
To commemorate the historic event of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union after 47 years of membership, I created a series of prints with balloon dogs dressed in colours of the UK and the EU flags. The balloon dogs show the possible relationship between the two sides. They are not an option or a critique of Brexit or the Brexit deal, but a question to the viewer. Which version of the print do you think it true? Which one is the most likely outcome?
This is why the prints will be sold in pairs ie. a pair of Brexit POPeks or a pair of Brexit Humpeks. You will benefit from both versions of the prints.
Whatshisname lives and works in London, UK.
He started creating his first digital art at the age of 7 while using an Atari 130 XE. After moving to London in 2006 and having worked as an assistant to several well established British artists, he starting creating works using both digital and traditional mediums.
The aim of his art is to express what cannot be expressed with words. He wants to encourage the viewer to look at the surrounding world and question it in derisive, unorthodox way.
An alias “Whatshisname” is inspired by the fact that he had trouble remembering other artists’ names and by the Green Day’s song “Whatshername”.
