Crime of Fashion, White (Editions of 5) ::   Dotmasters

Crime of Fashion, White (Editions of 5)

Stenciled Spray Paint on Canvas 20" x 16"


Born and raised in London, Dotmasters is the offspring of, a new-media based collective of art pranksters. Active throughout the 1990’s, they bridged the gap between art and activism with attention snatching events that pulled no punches. Hitting the headlines worldwide in 1997 with "Man in a Box" their work was eclectic, merging graffiti, new media and performance from the street, night clubs and galleries generating a steady stream of irreverent broadcasts.

Founding member Leon Cullinane, bored of the new-media world and the group dynamic started working under the alias ‘The Dotmasters,’ taking a sideways look at a populist medium says the East London based artist. The Dotmasters possesses a typically English sense of humor, throwing two fingers up at the passer-by with his impeccably detailed stencil work.

As at home in the ghetto as he is in paradise, The Dotmasters work can be found anywhere from a trailer park to the penthouses of Europe and was invited to take part in both Banksy’s Cans Festival in Waterloo and his Oscar nominated feature film ‘Exit Through The Gift Shop.’

A driving force behind the Nuart festival in Norway, Dotmasters love of the sinister has morphed the dark heart of the fairground into a twisted set of sideshows, dubbed ‘The Unfairground.’ The sideshows have been seen at festivals as far flung as Glastonbury and the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan.

Recently concentrating on the High Class Trash gallery shows, completing sell out shows of absolute rubbish in Tokyo, Miami's Wynwood District and London. Next stops on the global tour include Dubai and Los Angeles.
