Mike Watt is an illustrator and artist based in Sydney. He uses a variety of mediums and methods to make his work, which normally consist of his distinctive gnarly characters. He draws inspiration from people he sees in the street and is fascinated with the weird details and quirks which he pushes into his work and makes his own. He is also obsessed with pop culture and often does his version of existing characters. He’s been painting walls since the year 2000 and has been drawing for much longer.
He has worked as a commercial illustrator for the past 8 years but still makes his own art every chance he gets.
