Hailing from California, Fart Co are an art collective who have developed their style following from the original Hot Rodder Ed “Big Daddy” Roth.
The Monster Art movement grew out of the Kustom Kulture / Hot Rod scene of the 1950’s onwards. Ed Roth’s Rat Fink Character, a depraved grotesque Rat, was a reaction to the prevalence of Mickey Mouse in Pop Culture. Monster Art had been re-appropriated by the Chopper, Surf and Skateboard scenes and other counter cultures. Fart Co are continuing the tradition of Monster Art in keeping with the original style, and remains as relevant today as it ever was.
