Love & happiness.
BotMan became hugely popular by putting up hundreds of framed original pieces of his art across Cornwall, London & various spots across Europe & beyond. BotMan's art is symbolised by loving, innocent, child-like little robots who demonstrate acts of kindness & the giving of love. An act that seems sometimes lost within our world. As well as creating thousands of thought out pieces of art, BotMan has created merchandise such as prints, stickers, pin badges & guitar picks. The symbol of a cartoon style heart is ever present in all of BotMan's work, often along with a tree sometimes. These symbols reflecting happiness & life. The heart shows that love is ever present if we are willing to look for it & the tree symbolises life. The fact that we are here only once so it's important to enjoy & love life. BotMan uses the term, 'born lovin' to define his work, stating, "Too much Ronald McDonald & not enough Dali Lama". It's this phrase that BotMan states as his main desire to continue what he does. BotMan's work has been exhibited in galleries worldwide, including Cornwall, London, Miami, Australia, New York & Barcelona. His art has been published in various magazines, websites & newspapers, including The Cornishman, The Sun, 247 Magazine, Antidote & many more. It's claimed that BotMan's work was briefly seen in Banksy's film, Exit Through The Gift Shop but this is still to be confirmed.
BotMan has had two sell outs shows at London's Brick Lane Gallery. This gave him the platform then to be really noticed & as a result of this was invited to Ameica's most prestigous art even held in Miami. Art Basel. Here BotMan got to really sink his teeth into America, grafitti-ing anything that stood still long enough. It's fair to say Miami was well & truly 'Bot-ified'. Also, his work hung next to the likes of Ron English, Banksy, Daniel Johnston & Jullian Lennon. From Miami, it was back to Cornwall for his first UK solo show at Cafe Art in St Ives which was a great success. Selling out in two days of his Valentines Collection. Previous again at Cafe Art was a group show for December which BotMan sold out twice over. Such was the demand, more pieces were required. The latest edition to BotMan's shows was a show in Australia during December 13' & January 14'. Two pop up shows were created in Cairns & Sydney where only two pictures were left, these were given away to the first person BotMan saw as he left the show. If you have them, enjoy them. March 14' saw BotMan travel to America once again but this time to New York for a show.
Thank you for the love & support for BotMan, it really does mean the world.
