Nylon Magazine described Dalek’s art as “rivers of blood, psychotic space monkeys, and cigarettes that shoot diamonds which grow eyeballs”. We call it “umm… awesome?” Infectious’ latest founding artist Dalek (aka James Marshall) was a Navy brat and lived in Japan for a while when he was a kid. There was a Japan connection early in his career too, when he worked as the assistant of “superflat” art pioneer Takashi Murakami. But Marshall is more influenced by Britain than Japan: as a fan of Dr Who, he chose the alias Dalek as a homage to The Timelord’s robot enemies from the planet Skaro. He’s also into British cars. If there are any of you out there with a Triumph TR4A, your car is the one Dalek wants to see covered with his Space Monkeys.
