Art Brokerage: Paul Insect British Artist: b. 1971. Paul Insect, was born 1971 in southeastern England. He is one of cult art's most recognizable and prominent artists. As one of street art's trailblazers, a movement marking a new era in art history, Insect's work can be spotted anywhere from the streets of London to Los Angeles, from Stockholm to Sydney. Insect has worked alongside a host of today's most established artists and helped many with graphically developing their work, including Banksy and Jamie Hewlett. In 2007, Insect joined these and other POW artists painting the controversial separation wall in Palestine. That same year, "Bullion," his first major show in London, was entirely bought-out by Damien Hirst before opening to the public. This galvanized Insect's position as a groundbreaking artist. "Bullion" is now featured as part of Hirst's "Murderme" collection of contemporary art. Insect, who also goes by the name of PINS. Listings wanted.
