Mr Bingo is called Mr Bingo because when he was 19 he won £141 at the Gala Bingo. He’s been making it rain ever since. True story! 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. In summer 2015, he ran a Kickstarter campaign to fund a high-end art book of his Hate Mail illustrations with a rap video, making it the most successful Kickstarter for a book in the UK ever. He continues to be very interested in using interactions with strangers to fuel his work, whether that is through illustration, video, music or writing. Social media is a big part of this. Mr Bingo is ready to rock OFFF 2016 stage next year!
