Craig Moffatt was raised by cartoons, grunge and 90’s Hip hop, but never took creating seriously until his thirties. After being diagnosed with “wow life sucks” he came to the conclusion that the only time life didn’t suck is when he is creating something.
He is a Melbourne based artist who creates incredibly intricate mindscapes that manifest as paintings and works on paper, coming from a place between childhood and adulthood imaginings. His work is a bombardment of disjointed iconography from those times. It seems all-over, chaotic and random at first, but is simultaneously calming and hypnotic inviting the viewer to take their time and explore each piece for as long as they want.
A mix of art brut surrealist and cartoon art — a testament to contemporary image consumption and the overwhelming pace of our time.
