London-based artist Whatshisname attempts to bring contemporary art to a commonplace of public life with his take on everyday subjects like in his previous work— POPek The Pooping Balloon Dog. By giving the typical pop art piece a new lease of life, he aims to encourage the practice of regenerating popular and perhaps, overused ideas, avoiding conformation to common approaches on subjects.
Following the success of his pooping dog sculpture, the artist is back with yet another puppy on his leash taking a piss instead of a dump this time— PEEpek The Peeing Balloon Dog. Standing proudly at 8” tall, this cheeky second edition coloured in black is bound to liven up the mood in any mundane space!

Whatshisname (Sebastian Burdon) was born in Eastern Poland in 1982 and is currently based in England, United Kingdom. He first dabbled in digital art at the age of 7 on an Atari 130XE. In 2006, Whatshisname moved to London and started out as an assistant to various well-established British artists.
Today, Whatshisname creates art using both digital and traditional mediums, communicating ideas that cannot be expressed through words alone. His works encourage viewers to look at the world and question it in a derisive and unorthodox way. He got the idea for his alias “Whatshisname” through his personal struggle in remembering other artists’ names, and was also inspired by the song "Whatshername" by American punk band Green Day.
