This Artist Sends Elaborate Abusive Postcards To Anyone Who Tweet Him With An Address

Mr Bingo grew up in Leigh, Kent and attended The Judd School in Tonbridge. In 1998 he studied a foundation course at the Kent Institute of Art & Design in Maidstone and it was during this year that he played Bingo at Gala Bingo in Maidstone earning him the nickname ‘Bingo’. He went on to study graphic design at Bath Spa University College and specialised in illustration. He graduated in 2001 and moved to London.

Mr Bingo is best known for his Hate Mail project which he began in 2011. The project, which involves sending offensive postcards to strangers, started as a ‘drunk idea’ but was then exhibited in galleries and led to 2 books. In 2012, Camden Town Brewery released a limited edition Hate Ale beer with Mr Bingo called Camden Town Is Full Of Cunts. 5000 bottles were produced.

In the summer of 2015 Mr Bingo ran a Kickstarter campaign to fund a high-end art book of his Hate Mail illustrations. The campaign, which was launched with a rap video for which Mr Bingo wrote and recorded an original song, was set to run for 28 days but was successfully funded within 9 hours and finished 386% funded with 3,732 backers, becoming the most successful ever Kickstarter campaign for a book in the UK.
