Today, we are featuring Paul Insect which is an English contemporary artist based in London, UK. Paul Insect works with a variety of media, including sculpture, painting and print-making. His imagery often cross references modern with antiquarian and vintage graphic styles to create a visual twist. Insect’s work can be spotted anywhere from the streets of London to Los Angeles, from Stockholm to Sydney.
Outside of doing bigger works and since 2009, Paul Insect has been spreading his brilliant spiders all around the city of London. Done without permission, many pieces have unfortunately already been buffed.
The British artist says: “I suppose they have become more of a tag to me now. Just a bit of fun”.
