    The artist behind Whatshisname, Sebastian Burdon, was born in 1982 in Eastern Poland. He is living and working today in London, UK. Retelling that his first artwork was produced at the age of 7, Burdon demonstrates his early creativity. In 2006, Burdon moved to the United Kingdom and worked as an assistant for renowned artists and designers. There, he demonstrated his multifaceted artistic skills in digital and traditional mediums of expression.
    Burdon adopted the alias Whatshisname after reflecting on the difficulty of often remembering other artists’ names and thus inquiring “What’s his name?” On the other hand, he found inspiration in the band Green Day’s song “Whatshername”. In addition, Burdon comments his art aims to motivate the viewer to perceive the world around. Not to mention that he does it through an unorthodox and derisive lense. Moreover, the artist manages to use his art as a much more eloquent.
    Whatshisname art is able to express what words come short when describing.
