He has created live art for Barbican, Tate Modern, The Royal Academy, Whitstable Biennale, Whitechapel Gallery, South London Gallery, Camberwell Arts Festival, Edinburgh Fringe and many others. Frog hosted his own regular night at the Montague Arms pub in South London and his own annual festival called Frogstock in East Anglia. He studied Graphic Fine Art at Kent Institute of Art and Design in Canterbury and Masters of Fine Art at Goldsmiths College.
Frog Morris is fascinated by absurd idiosyncratic moments in English culture. His is world of pub quizzes, bingo calls, meat-based snacks, low budget sci-fi, real ale, bow-ties, poetry, DIY punk aesthetics, folk songs and stories about woodland animals. He is concerned by the traditional, but unconcerned by the conventional. Performances are usually delivered with his own subversive twist. Sometime his work is laugh out loud funny. Sometime it is profoundly unnerving. The audience are usually left unsure about what to expect next from him.
Though perhaps best known as a performance artist, Frog Morris is also a skilled draftsman and designer. His shows are usually complimented by his own illustrated posters, drawings, comic strips, sound recording, videos and handmade props. When not performing, he uses these skill to produce work for museums, festivals and others clients.
Frog Morris has a history of curating exhibitions and live event including the much loved Frogstock Festival which has run for over 10 years in Norfolk. Frog Morris has also hosted regular shows at the Montague Arms in New Cross since 2007 (well over 100 shows in total). His agenda was to establish a place where musicians, comedians and live artists could share the same bill and showcase their more experimental work, whilst audiences could discover something new and unexpected. His event are often likened to old music hall or Dadaist cabaret and they have provided a platform for many great artists and performers.
Frog Morris loves to work collaboratively and you may will often see him side-by-side with Mark Dean Quinn, Daren Callow, Nicole Mollett, Theo Morris, Joanna McCorrmick, Dr. Lee Campbell and many other talented artists, musician and performers.
