Visual artist, comic book writer, musician, and radio presenter Babak Ganjei lives and works in London, UK. Inspired by the music and comedy of the 1990s, Babak is a prolific artist whose work is energetic, unpredictable, and darkly funny.

Babak Ganjei's work blends and unites humour, cultural references, and immediacy. After graduating from Central St Martins, Babak has continued to share his inner monologue through his art, resulting in ‘an inner monologue that isn’t an inner monologue anymore’. Ganjei gained recognition when his ‘Film Idea’ series went viral, which included works, ‘Chicken Nugget City’, ‘Kung-Fu Jesus’, and ‘Jurassic Shop’. Notable works include a painting of a Barclays Card auctioned in lieu of debt he owed and a set of twigs from his neighbourhood. Babak aspires to “get to a point where walking about Sainsburys would be (his) art,” pushing the boundaries of creativity and redefining the concept of ‘art’ itself. Ganjei's artworks are a reaction to daily occurrences, and reveal the influence of giant video shop posters that he collected when he was younger. Ganjei’s "Everything is really bad..." exhibition was shown at Atom in March 2019, “Honey Wagon” at Browns East in 2021, and "Babak Ganjei's Vibe Dump" in September 2022.

Babak Ganjei Facts

Ganjei’s music pitch artworks began life as tweets but were ignored until he began to write them out on pieces of paper.

“There’s nothing more liberating than being totally transparent.”

Ganjei has said that his influences are vast but are made up of ‘one part from Nirvana and punk/DIY’.

In 2022, Babak Ganjei made a film for Somerset House about breaking rules in art as part of the exhibition ‘Beano: The Art of Breaking the Rules’.

Ganjei has spoken of the importance of Instagram to his practice, and the relationship between his text artworks and the platform.
