Schoony

Schoony is a multi-talented urban artist whose unique aesthetic and technical brilliance has taken the art world by storm. His hyperrealist sculptures question war, mortality and contemporary society. Schoony's background is rooted in special effects and prosthetics for the film industry, with his career spanning over twenty-five years. Since the age of fifteen he has worked on over a hundred films. Schoony exploded onto the London art scene in 2008 at Mutate Britain's 'One Foot Under the Grove', one of the most pioneering street art exhibitions to date. His most iconic life cast sculpture 'Boy Soldier' first unveiled outside the houses of parliament as an anti-war protest, is now a household name. It was featured in Hollywood blockbusters and collected internationally by Benedict Cumberbatch and Brad Pitt to mention a few. Since then Schoony has experimented with many different themes, examining capitalism and pop culture, with his keen eye and technical ability Schoony remains one of the few artists working within the life-cast discipline.
