London born artist Philip Levine started using his head as a canvas for creativity back in 2006 when he began to go bald. Using it as a form of artistic expression, Philip’s art aims to give out a social message and has inspired many men, women and children who are affected by something negative in their life to embrace their problem and use it in a positive way through art and creativity. Philip’s debut exhibition ‘Headism’, sponsored by Gillette, showcased head designs that have now become iconic around the world. This creative art form has won him a place in both Time Out’s Culture 100 and The Observer Future 500. His works have been part of Phaidon’s publication ‘Wild Art‘ and displayed in numerous locations including Somerset House alongside artists Damien Hirst, Gabriel Dawe, Hugo Dalton and Georgia Russell.
Philip’s exhibitions aren’t limited to gallery installations; he has been living art in the Victoria & Albert Museum, BBC Media Centre, Somerset House, The Roundhouse and internationally including The Art Museum of Estonia, Kumu, and Helsinki City Art Museum, Finland. Meanwhile, his workshops and talks on performance and creativity have been much in demand at The Tate Modern, Central Saint Martins, University College London and the BBC Worldwide Creative Summit.

Philip mainly teams up with professional body painter Kat Sinclair, continuously creating a wealth of designs ranging from his 1000-Swarovski crystal headpiece to homages to such artists as Hokusai. He also collaborates with numerous creatives, the results of which can be seen via the blog section.
Philip’s work has been publicly displayed both in London and across the world, in countries including the USA and Uruguay. A main supporter of this has been Art Below, who have shown over a dozen posters and digital projection films of Philip’s head designs in London Underground stations including Kings Cross, Liverpool Street & Baker Street.
Philip is also a cultural entrepreneur and co-founder of the collective Lazy Gramophone, an arts and design label that supports developing artists by running a Dylan Thomas Prize nominated publishing label, gallery and events. He works in the fashion, art and design industries for various businesses and was previously recruited to work as a Cultural Attaché for The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, London.
