Matthew Lenik

  • Biography

Mat Lenik's pen and ink drawings set free the friendly but sinister creatures from the nowhere place. Somewhere between Heinrich Hoffman's uncanny imaginings, Edward Gorey's tragic heroes and a tea party filled with smiling, knowing, grotesquely cute, mostly contented, conjoined sideshow freaks.

His work has been exhibited in London, Stockholm, Barcelona and Milan, and has been featured in publications such as Dazed and Confused magazine; in which he was recognised with a first place positioning after competing against over 1000 entries - so he evidently has followers in high places.
