With appearances in Banksy's Oscar nominated Exit Through The Gift Shop and 2008's Stay Free public installation staged outside the Tate Modern earning him undisputed global recognition. Since 2008, Sickboy had over four solo exhibitions, most recently ‘Make It Last Forever’ in London.

Sickboy is currently based between his London and Barcelona studios, exhibiting and curating across emerging international art fairs and self­funded projects worldwide.
