Artist Darlek A.K.A James Marshall

Artist Dalek, who's real name is James Marshall, was born in America and had an interest in punk rock, skateboarding and graffiti while growing up and later turned to cartoons and Japanese pop.

He studied at Virginia Commonwealth University and the Art Institute of Chicago but his major turning point was working as Takashi Murakami's assistant in 2001. He is best known for his iconic Space Monkey character, which is a sort of catatonic, twisted robot/mouse, but his complex abstract patterns are also amazing and it is his use of colour that stands out for me.
