Biography

Beejoir is a contemporary artist who creates street art full of parody, subversion, and dry humor. His satirical art is raising questions about notions of public space and expected behaviors in our contemporary world. With a body of works spanning fine painting, stencils and spray paint, print, and sculpture; Beejoir creates ironical pieces commenting on vice, popular culture, super brands, and consumerism. Among his best-known images are LV Child, Turin Scam, and his dripping spot paintings. Beejoir brilliantly depicts subdued drama out of commonplace subjects ‘layered with a poetic meaning’, inviting narrative interpretations, often unintended. His powerful images and anti-narrative symbolism "touch us where we are most vulnerable”. Through his personal vision of the world, we see consciously embed psychological meaning in his extraordinary artworks. Born in 1979, Beejoir who spent his youth in the South West of England is a completely self-taught artist. He has successfully shown, curated, and exhibited in over 70 solo and group shows across the world in some of the leading private galleries, institutions, and auction houses. Credited as 'making 2013 Frieze weeks most irreverent work' by Financial Times critic Rachel Spence, Beejoir's never stepped far from controversy, with hard-hitting images such as the iconic 'LV Child', 'Money Trap', 'Saatchi & Saatchi Punch & Judy' and in 2015 producing his large scale installation #NRCSSM an immersive show questioning our relationship with narcissism in the digital age at the Bangkok CityCity Gallery. Nowadays, Beejoir spends his time equally between Asia and Europe, creating and producing his own work as well as advising and curating gallery shows for some of the leading artists in the street art movement.
