“I just want to cheer people up a bit, as there’s far too many miserable bastards out there!” Bortusk Leer

Fed up with people being angry, disappointed, sad and disillusioned with life, Leer sees it as his duty to brighten up the world and spread some happiness. Over a decade Bortusk has developed a signature voice and style, creating manic, euphoric creatures (his monsters) plus other lively abstract pieces, videos, TV shows and numerous psychedelic assemblages of Neo-Pop-Art-Brut.

Fascinated by Picasso and the Cobra-movement, inspired by futuristic heroes and influenced by all the children of the world, Leer became the founder and leader of Art Comedy. He’s still the only member though as far as we know. His aim is not only to create as much art as he possibly can, but also to put a smile on everyone’s face and spread some positive emotions whilst doing so.

Living as we do now in a world of division, suspicion and distress, Bortusk looks beyond this.
Some say his mission is naive while others bless him for it. Leer himself does not fear naivety, he fears cynicism. Loudly and gamesomely Leer attempts to question our mental, social and political barriers. He tries to disrupt our fears and our expectations.
Finally, his effervescent work challenges the inner child in us all to come out and play.
