MOVE over Banksy – there’s a new graffiti artist in town.
Jiggles, from Henley, is a young autistic artist who is making his mark on the graffiti world.
One of his custom pieces of Queen Elizabeth II – featuring his signature “scribble art” – was listed for private offers at auction recently and was bought by a buyer from China for £18,400.
Jiggles – who prefers to remain anonymous and be known only by his ‘stage-name’ – is not only autistic, but also suffers from ASD and ADHD.
Christopher Stevens, a family friend who is helping Jiggles with his digital content, said that these disorders have failed to hinder Jiggles’ ability to draw some of the “most amazing pieces I have personally seen”.
“Without doubt Jiggles is gaining in popularity online and is growing a great following. We are all very confident that Jiggles is going to reach great heights in the art world,” he added.
Jiggles’ artwork was also raffled off at the Lord Mayor’s Ukraine charity event in Coventry earlier this year, helping to raise over £2,700 for a local Ukraine relief fund.
