One tenth of street art collective The Weird DXTR was given his nickname by friends who would describe his kitchen, often littered with paint kettles and and spray cans as Dexter’s Laboratory. His work is most often described as ‘Pop Surrealism’ and he’s painted walls all over Europe as well as creating work for clients ranging from Amnesty International to Nike. We caught up with him to find out more.
Bristol based street artist and illustrator Mr. Penfold started learning how to use a spray can aged 12 and cites airbrushing, skate graphics and his parents collection of abstract art as some of his major influences. He was one of the first artists we approached about a Pick Me Up collaboration and have been busy developing a sweatshirt, tote bag, 10 colour t-shirt. We’ll also be releasing a variable screen print edition in which each background was individually hand painted. Read on for more info as well as details about how to pre order some of the pieces ahead of the launch on Thursday.

He’s bringing t-shirts, vest dresses and a brand new 4 colour screen print edition to our exhibition space at Pick Me Up. Want to know more? Read on…
