Following on from the successful group show “Let’s Go Magic Weirdos”, held last year in his hometown of Perth, Western Australia, Sean Morris is at it again. This time he’s bringing his work and bunch of impressive, magical weirdos to London.
The line-up includes Australian art heroes Ghostpatrol and Kyle Hughes-Odgers, Spanish comic artist Berto Fojo, the prolific Luke Pelletier from the States, and killer London based illustrators Jon Boam, Suzie Kemp and Jasper Dunk.
Along side these phenomenal names will be the usual awesome depravity from Londoner James Unsworth, the black metal space demons of Madrid’s Manuel Donada, beautifully strange and politically charged drawings from Florida’s Dillon Froelich and the white trash fables of Sean Morris himself, who hits London just 2 weeks after a successful solo exhibition in Madrid.
‘Be Sweet, Deadbeat’ an exhibition of new works by Sean Morris at House of Bricks Gallery in Melbourne. More photos after the jump.

I share a studio with a weirdo. everyday he is talking to me about his weirdo ideas. Most of his ideas disgust me or impress me or change the way I think about things. His name is Sean Morris, he put on a group show last week in Perth. It was filled with artwork from all over the world created by a bunch of other disgusting, impressive magic weirdos. opening night pics below. congrats Sean on putting this together you horrible weirdo.
