With that signature, enormous red-gummed mouth, a piece by U.K. illustrator Lumps is easy to spot in both its inventiveness and eccentricity. Lumps is the working name of artist Sam Drew, who balances both a personal and commercial practice with his recognizable style. With his involvement, an everyday object can come alive with a mischievous set of chompers or a fantastical machine can be examined.
“Covering elements from the weird to the grotesque, the sublime to the ridiculous; the twisted vision of Lumps provides a contemporary take on the form,” the artist says, in a statement about the agency produced from the Lumps brand. “We have received an influx of positive responses from an audience consisting of musicians and record labels; which has led to collaborative work with clients from around the world.”
