Artist’s statement

As I have grown up in a world which has significantly revolved around and been influenced by popular culture, I decided to express my overall interest in this aspect of Western society by referencing different artistic styles and design choices in my work. While each piece conveys a completely different story, all are thematically connected and have a subtle relationship that integrates the individual pieces to give expression to the idea as a whole. My work exists to give a deep insight into the surreal stories, landscapes and characters being portrayed.

Influencing artists: Dave Hackett, Carlos D’Anda, Tony Moore, Patrick Brown
