Operating anonymously under a moniker that is as witty as it is elusive, the artist’s latest body of work presents onlookers with an array of characters that are at once both familiar and estranged. Channelling composition, arrangement and nostalgia, Villainy reimagines iconic cartoons from throughout the ages, conflating shapes, characters and cinematic universes in an act that has established him as the ultimate ‘cartoon villain’.

From adopting the imagery of icons such as Mickey Mouse and Winnie the Pooh, to characters of The Simpsons and The Flintstones, Jerkface takes inspiration from the vivid palette and bold design of ‘Memphis’ style, marrying the unbridled dynamism of youth with the clean aesthetic of geometric abstraction.

Marking the artist’s first solo show in the United Kingdom, Villainy is an immersive experience like no other. With the artist taking over both the interior and exterior of the gallery in a move that is as unique as it is unexpected, visitors are transported into the vivid imagination of Jerkface and invited to discover their favourite childhood characters as they’ve never seen them before…
