‘So come with me where dreams are born and time is never planned. Just think happy things and your heart will fly on wings forever in Never-Never Land’
- Peter Pan

Born in the late great summer of nineteen eighty something Spike Dennis displayed an aptitude for making and creating at a young age primarily through his love of playing with Duplo™ and Stickle Bricks. He spent several years floating around inside his own dreams imagining that he was roaming the mountain tops in the far north, chasing the Lunar Hare with a fish knife, before eventually giving up his preschool toys in exchange for some paints and brushes.

Spike trained at the prestigious Wimbledon School of Art in London where he was taught the deepest darkest secrets of the age old tradition that is Fine Art Painting. He later completed his Masters Degree in Fine Art following which he developed his purple tendencies, a lust for unicorn porn and a textiles based arts practice.

With a penchant for big hair, acrylic paint and peroxide Spike won’t be satiated until he has taken his distorted visions of the world around us to the furthest reaches of the universe.
