Funky Red Dog was trained at Epsom Art College in the early 1990’s then studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins in London, where he specialized in Printmaking & Photomedia, and began to screenprint onto advertising boards from the London Underground, and replace them on his travels on the Northern line.
In the late 1990’s he painted backdrops & murals in the nightclubs and bars of London and “decorated” the telephone boxes of Soho with hoax call-girl cards, stickers, screenprinted subverted adverts and fly posters. He went on to Co-found the Phood Gallery in 2000, in a condemned building on the Camberwell road.
After a short spell attending various festivals around the country he settled in Brighton in 2002 where he continues to decorate the street furniture with his surreal pop art. His work is sold in galleries across London & has been exhibited worldwide. He regularly donates artwork to urban free-art projects around the world.
As well as painting live at festivals and screenprinting his own range of T-shirts, he also teaches stencil workshops and works with children painting murals in their schools.
