Louis de Villiers (b. 1987 Empangeni, South Africa) is a visual artist, art director, and graphic designer currently living and working in Brooklyn, New York. From 2006-2017, he worked under the alias of SKULLBOY, and has exhibited throughout South Africa, Berlin, New York and Amsterdam; as well as made murals from Johannesburg to Hong Kong. Since 2011, de Villiers has worked primarily in black, white and gold leaf – transitioning into his ‘Blue Phase’ in 2019 as his practice developed. Continuing to work primarily on large-scale-works on paper, his scenes explore themes of post-internet culture, social media and Iconography of Success through a metaphorical jungle-society. He is represented by Kalashnikovv Gallery in Johannesburg, South Africa
