The Dotmaster, a UK artist, started painting on the streets of Brighton in the early 1990s. He takes a sideways look at a populist media with a typically English sense of humour. His work is impeccably detailed – his half-tone work, stark black and white street pieces and unique, photo-real colour stencils all create street-based illusions that fool the eye. Invited to take part in Banksy’s Waterloo ‘Cans Festival’ and featuring in the Oscar-nominated ‘Exit Through the Gift Shop’, The Dotmaster exhibits internationally. He has collaborated with grassroots activists, luxury brands, Glastonbury festival, weirdos, developers and drop outs.
