The Coupon Kid was raised in an orphanage during the fifties alongside his pal, a would-be gallery painter called John Doe Dabber by his closest friends, although he paints under other names. Dabber paints in the art style du jour, for which he creates the perfect matching pseudonym. During his minimalist/geometric period John Doe was Haarvard Hammonds, while during a dark exploration of the human condition he signed his scabrous canvases with the improbable Bernie Auschwitz. John Doe is a facile art chameleon, always changing and adapting, leaving his past behind.
