Mr. Controversial is a London-based artist who uses oil paint and screen printing techniques to transform vintage imagery into a satirical commentary on the digital world.
The artistic process begins with consuming and analysing targeted content; reverse-engineering the success of the internet memes that gain the most traction. Taking data and recreating it as an artwork with a focus on authenticity. Using oil paints, and screen printing, this artist fuses vintage imagery with traditional fine art and relatable captions that tell comical, satirical, and sometimes dark stories.
