WHATSHISNAME

Based in the UK 

Sebastian Burdon started creating his first digital art at the age of 7 while using Atari 130 XE. After moving to London in 2006 and having worked as an assistant to well-established British artists, he creates art using both digital and traditional mediums.
 
The aim of Whatshisname’s art is to express what cannot be express with words. He wants to encourage the viewer to look at surrounding world and question it in a derisive, unorthodox way.
 
The alias “Whatshisname” is inspired by the fact that he has trouble remembering other artists’ names and by Green Day’s song “Whatshername”.

The purpose of the artwork is to stimulate inspiration, unleash creativity and evoke a sense of wonder by changing common patterns of thinking. The ordinary object turns into unexpected and unorthodox. The artwork is meant to refresh viewer’s mind and wash off the boredom of everyday life.

This sculpture and print are the artworks of a statement in support of the change, the revolution, and protest against unfairness. The sculpture is inspired by the events of 2019 and 2020, the protests in the USA, the riots in Hong Kong, and Chile to name the few. It seemed that not a day has passed when we haven’t heard of the massive protest happening all over the globe. This sculpture encapsulates those events and pays tribute to those who suffered and fought for what is right.
