Doktor A – Artist Profile

posted in: Artists | 4

devilDoktor A lives under a hill in the UK. There he monitors the world’s off-kilter-culture and produces his dark twisted dreams – a mix of character-driven clashes of urban pop culture, classic children’s stories and neo-Victorian industrial neverlands.

Raised by the military and monitored by men in white coats until he was 16, Doktor A has always scribbled monsters. “You will never make a living drawing little men,” said a teacher once. They were nearly right.

He has to not only draw, but also design and build his little men to make a living. These dubious skills have led his successes in theatre, television, advertising, magazines, the music industry and toy design.

    Doktor A is one of my favs. I love the Steampunk style, but mostly I love how he makes different characters all the time. A lot of artists these days are coping out by making 10 colorways of the same toy (read Jled/Kozik/KR). I know Doktor A has colorways, but he has way more characters than colorways. LOVE HIM!
