About Mark Drew

Mark Drew is an Australian artist based in Tokyo since 2009, and co-founder of China Heights Gallery (Sydney, AU). His narrative-based work takes on the format of a comic still, using rap lyrics as dialogue for Peanuts characters. As is common practice in hip hop music production, the artist “samples” rap lyrics, and characters from the Peanuts gang, redefining the meaning of both.  Ranging from the existential to the absurd, the artist creates a new universe for the wholesome Peanuts characters, calling to question the meaning of life, perseverance, relationships, and loyalty.
