The man behind the myth

Apparently born under a super full moon sometime in the last century in a country too difficult to pronounce, let alone spell. Not much is known of his early years, other than they are shrouded in the deepest of secrets. Some say he was raised in a traveling circus, others that he is an aristocrat of Slovenian heritage, that was never seen in public without sporting a top hat and silver tipped walking cane. Rumour has it that he is now 98 years old and used to associate with the greatest minds of his age. Then again others think he's just some bloke from England who likes to paint ridiculous amounts of stupid, bright coloured art.

What we do know though is that since bursting onto the art scene in 2007 this happy, childish, neon, silly work has been appearing and popping up on streets and gallery walls in numerous places around the world. With the sole purpose of trying to brighten up the viewers day and cheer them up a bit. Bortusk calls his style art comedy, but sometimes he's the only one laughing if we're being honest. Anyway we'll leave you with a quote from the international man of mystery himself before you get bored and look at something else instead. "Smile, I'm just trying to paint the party, init!"
