Born and raised in Liverpool, Dirty Hans is a self-taught painter and illustrator who finds inspiration in pop culture and the Urban Art movement. Drawing from 1950s culture movies, comic books and classic movies, Dirty Hans’ fantastical spaces are a playful take on pop culture icons and superheroes such as Marilyn Monroe, Clint Eastwood and Spiderman.read more >
Dirty Hans began painting as a child to counteract their self-confessed hyperactive tendencies, finding the practice calming. As an adult, Dirty Hans travelled extensively throughout Europe before settling in Antwerp, Belgium for 7 years. Whilst living there the artist refined their style, drawing inspiration from the likes of Henri Tolouse-Latrec and Roy Lichtenstein. Dirty Hans has exhibited work worldwide in cities including Paris, Berlin, Miami, Antwerp, and extensively across the UK.
We’ve been working with Dirty Hans since 2015.
