BIO

Hero

Up and coming London based street artist Hero is demanding a fast growing audience, nearly selling out in a group show at The Brick Lane Gallery. Hero’s work appropriates the visual language of Heroism, using characters from comic books and Disney to contemporary art personalities and popular culture. Each interpretation of these characters is given an individual twist that wittily reveals social truths surrounding the way The Hero is perceived.

He works mainly in spray paint on canvas but often adds various other mixed media that brings texture and meaning to his work. This is most evident in his work For the Love of Capital in which he uses crushed glass, or rather what he calls “diamond dust,” to construct the face of richest living artist Damien Hirst.

Hero’s work is naturally witty and uncontrived, and there is an innocence to his actions as a street artist that make his work undeniably smile-worthy.
