Born in Northern Ireland and currently based in Ramsgate, Joni Belaruski can usually be found either making art or making music.

Her work celebrates the weird and the wonderful, the dark and the silly, drawing inspiration from pop culture to pornography to David Attenborough, and fishing around within the dark depths of the human psyche where dreams and nightmares reside... Topped off with a healthy touch of gallows humour.

A former Fine Art student of the University of Ulster in Belfast, Belaruski transferred to London Metropolitan in 2010. After several years in the capital, she now resides on the Kent coast, where she is perhaps best known for creating the crow artwork for rock band The Libertines, which adorns the sign outside their hotel/bar/recording studio The Albion Rooms in Margate (as well as featuring on their T-shirts and own-brand Wasteland IPA!).

She continues to exhibit regularly in London and Kent, as well as painting murals around the coast, and has had her artwork used by numerous bands, including Foy Vance, The 1975, The Libertines and The Urban Voodoo Machine. She is also a touring muscian, playing drums for punk folk favourites ‘The Great Malarkey’, and Teenage Werewolves (the world's No.1 Cramps tribute band), and tuba for The Future Psychedelics The Future.
