Shag

Fancy a shag?

Look no further.

Painter, illustrator and designer Josh “Shag” Agle is the master of sharp, swinging lounge aesthetic that embraces illustrative finesse, flat perspective, and the type of subtle humour that has become synonymous with Shag’s work – a celebration of consumerism through characters who smoke, drink and socialise in fantasy settings.

His works are visually influenced by avant-garde animation of the early fifties and sixties, as well as generic advertising art of the same era – such as sci-fi pulp art and sixties clip art.
