WIZARDSKULL Solo Exhibition at Jan Arnold Gallery, Vienna Austria 2018
WIZARDSKULL Painter and street artist Wizard Skull’s humorous and often raunchy riffs on cartoon characters and mascots poke fun at pop culture and commercialism. Wizard Skull transforms recognizable characters from Homer Simpson and Mickey Mouse to Gumby and SpongeBob SquarePants into hybrid mashups, squiggly portraits, and obscene portrayals of fetishistic sex acts. Best known for his street art, Wizard Skull creates wheatpaste posters and murals that have become fixtures throughout New York City and elsewhere. One of his most famous wheatpastes —Sexy Ronald (2011–present), which depicts a strapping Ronald McDonald wearing only underwear with French fries popping out from the waistband —went viral on social media, bringing greater attention to his work. Involved with skateboarding culture from a young age, Wizard Skull has designed graphics for skateboard decks and t-shirts and produced illustrations for skateboarding magazines.
