Mr Bingo was born in 1979. In 1980 he started drawing. When he was 19 he won £141 at the Gala Bingo. He’s been making it rain ever since. Over the last fifteen years he has worked with hundreds of clients across a wide range of media. In 2011 he began the project Hate Mail on Twitter, where strangers paid him to send a hand-drawn offensive postcard to a name and address of their choice. Like much of his work, the project started as ‘a drunk idea’, but ended up being exhibited in galleries and gaining notoriety among the global press. After an incredibly successful Kickstarter Campaign, launched with a rap video for which Mr Bingo wrote and performed an original song, his Hate Mail illustrations are now bound in a high-end art book.
