About us

Artwork by West Hollywood, artist duo Idiot Box Art, is cute, fun and bold, but not to be underestimated...

Each piece is hand-cut on wood, painted and finished with a heavy gloss.

 Their passions include cartoons, exotic snacks and Yeezys.

Their career first started with selling through markets like the Melrose Trading Post, and galleries Hale Arts and Bruce Lurie Gallery. Idiot Box Art has recently opted out of the gallery and market scene, and have turned efforts towards a direct to collector approach. Leveraging tools like Facebook advertising and Affirm, Idiot Box Art currently sells their resin artworks exclusively online.

 When not painting or cutting wood, you can catch them killing off a bowl of Crunch Berries or throwing down on Nintendo Switch.

 Their 90's cartoon collections have been featured on TMZ and Hypedfresh and can be found hanging in the homes of celebrities and social media influencers.
