Matthew Callaby, known as Callaby, is a British artist, currently based in London. He uses acrylic on canvas to create cute, chubby characters in a strange, vivid world.
His work often features anthropomorphic characters painted in his unique, illustrative style. Despite see-sawing between adorable and disturbing, Callaby’s main goal is to create a sense of fun within his work.
Referred to as “little squidgy cute fellas,” Callaby’s characters play on innocence and human emotions, and offer an amazing addition to any space. Hailing from the UK, artist Mr. Callaby’s art stems from his familial love for graffiti art. Callaby has been drawing since his teenage years and works to spread fun and happiness with his artwork.
