ARTIST BIO

Perish the thought, but, just in case, there’s Imbue. Call him a smart aleck, a wisecracker, a practical joker guerilla artist. Imbue distills revisited iconography, constantly questioning images from advertising and pop culture by perverting its context. Mickey Mouse on a cross, Snow White in a cheesecake pose; street art is Imbue’s way of mixing things up.

Imbue was born in London on January 19, 1988. He spent his childhood in the Southeast England county of Kent. The artist recalls always having a creative bent, a pursuit fueled by his father. Many times his dad brought home boxes and tape from work, and the youth set to cutting them up, sticking the pieces together, and otherwise making a great mess. It also proved a lot of fun and served as an early introduction to a crude and rudimentary form of working with found objects and installations.

Imbue’s initial street art experiments in Brighton covered numerous techniques, employing paint, markers and printing as he worked towards his unique style. By 2009, he had made his mark, artistically speaking, and held his first solo exhibit, “A World Gone Mad,” at Brighton’s Ink-d Gallery.
