Puppyteeth

about Jaik “Puppyteeth” Olson

Behind the poignant and acerbic cynicism of Jaik Olson’s satirical illustrations, lies the sweet heart of a bitter pup jaded by a dissatisfaction with everyday life. A queer artist and self-described “recluse,” currently working out of Chinatown, Vancouver, under the moniker Puppyteeth. In 2013 he had dropped out of art school, had no phone, and had quite a hefty drug addiction.

After his success, achieved mostly due to Instagram, today Jaik hopes to make his cynical observations more political, making work that focuses on the supporters of xenophobic, misogynistic, and homophobic politicians. “I feel like I need to be more of a voice. Especially in the political climate right now, I need to focus less on quibbling straight relationships and more on actual issues.”
