Self taught, Irony's industrial scale street artworks still retain a softness, painting freehand with spray paints, like an oil painter with a brush. On canvas too, across many subjects, there is always an inherent quality at the core. A distillation of that intangible grimy energy that is uniquely London.
Irony's recent works explore mixing classical portraiture with the grotty aesthetic of urban spaces. Bringing these neglected and unorthodox landscapes a decadence that romanticises them rather than hiding their ruin.
Irony is currently painting on other peoples things, being sarcastic to journalists and writing in the third person.
