Mark Malarko based this piece on the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland, as it was painted on a street called Cheshire Street. He found this quite funny - Mark’s friend had a shop opposite to the location and one day they were speaking to an old man that said the wall was his and that Mark should paint it. It turned out he was joking but ‘Cheshire Cat’ still got the spot and it stayed there for years. Malarko is donating a portion of the primary sale of each NFT from his collection towards supporting artist communities in Barcelona.

Mark Malarko is a British artist commonly known for his iconic low-brow art. Introduced to the world of alternative culture through his years spent as a skateboarder in London during the 90s, Malarko gained notoriety in the noughties for his prolific output of public mural works both sanctioned and unsanctioned.
It was when Malarko started studying ceramics in Stoke on Trent, London that his work really diversified and became his go-to medium. Malarko has since developed a loose and energetic style that merges traditional techniques with unconventional references to popular culture. He uses found objects on the streets or gypsy markets, stylising his paintings and ceramics to elevate his ideas into something completely refreshing and outspoken. His work slips between the abstract and the familiar, creating a unique and peculiar contemporary visual language.
Malarko is currently working in Barcelona where there is little government support for artists. He is donating a portion of the primary sale of each NFT from his collection towards supporting artist communities in his area.
