I was born in London in 1979. Age twenty, I intoxicated myself with a mix of magic mushrooms and codeine and fell into a coma. When I woke up I started drawing and made a career out of it. A couple of years later I launched an eponymous label Charles Anastase that became in two thousand and twenty one a digital platform: Charles Little Shop of Horrors.
