Mr. Hooper

Milhous



Mr. Hooper... Milhous (2006, Acrylic on Canvas). From a selection of New Works by Mr. Hooper. "...For years while I was doing comix and graffiti, I operated under several pseudonyms. I never intended to be a painter who operated under a pseudonym. However, I had a teacher in college who addressed everyone by their last name. The parallel between me being Mr. Hooper and the character on Sesame Street (also named Mr. Hooper) was irresistible to my classmates. The nickname stuck with me and I began to sign prints and eventually paintings with Mr. Hooper. My given name is Tim Hooper but you can call me Mr. Hooper - everyone else does."
