Muffinhead is a performance absurdist and hyper-art surrealist cartoon imaginary intent on bringing his otherworldly visions to nightlife and beyond. Born in Los Angeles, the artist’s explosive graphic ingenuity soon propelled him across America and toward an ever-auspicious tomorrow.
Since relocating to New York City in 2005, the artist has brought his chaotic and somewhat obsessive panache to the cities’ hottest galleries, events and nightlife, producing events with Kenny Scharf, Shien Lee and Susanne Bartsch. He has had the pleasure of working with The Deitch Projects Art Parade, performed in Austria for The Love Ball in 2009 and co-produced the art party extravaganza BANZAI!!! at The Red Lotus Room in Brooklyn throughout 2010.
Seeking first and foremost to see his many concepts through to their brilliant completion, often taking several months on any given project, Muffinhead continues 2011 with a reputation in the art world and in nightlife as a furiously creative talent never to be missed.
