Provenance LAZ inc, London Acquired directly from the above by the present owner in 2008
Initially working as part of the urban art collective 'insect', Paul Insect has painted solo since 2005. He has been involved in many of the Urban Art movement's most important events, including the 2007 Santa's Ghetto in Bethlehem, which took some of the biggest Street art names to the Middle East for the first time. His London solo show Bullion in the same year attracted unprecedented interest from both collectors and the press, while his show Poison, held a year later in a former sex shop in London's King's Cross further confirmed his reputation as name to watch. Insect's work combines the colorful tone of Pop with a darker, Dadaist sensibility.
