SHAKY KANE emerged on the UK comic scene in the mid-80’s, drawing for such publications as The NME, Escape, Deadline, 2000 AD, Judge Dredd the Megazine and Revolver.
He is one of a group of artists who have grown out of late twentieth century pop culture influenced by Punk Rock, Comic Books, American Pop Culture and Late Night TV.
Often described as both hallucinatory and psychedelic, Kane’s work pushes at the limits of taste, dragging a scalpel down the veil of illusion making you see the world as it really is.
Shaky came to comics via the work of artist such as Ed ‘Big Daddy’ Roth, Savage Pencil, Jack Kirby, Brett Ewins and Brendan McCarthy. He was influenced from a young age by the Punk Scene- Not just the music, but the distinctive flyer and poster art which advertised the shows.
His most recent work- The critically acclaimed THE BULLETPROOF COFFIN (Published thru Image Comics), a collaboration with UK based writer David Hine, has found the artist at the top of his game, and finally in full control of his artistic direction.
