Hey, how’s your week been?
So you had a show in Berlin ?
How did you arrive at art?
myself, I’ll decide after this whether I’ll continue with art or study an academic subject. The course was really good; I did it at Leeds College of Art and then came back to London, where I studied Illustration and painting at Camberwell.
Tell us more about your work!
My work is mostly figurative and portraiture based. Life drawing was great- I did that at secondary school all the way throughout foundation and degree. It was almost like, how can I apply what I do in life drawing to my own personal projects? With that I started messing around with proportions and colours of the human body- like taking the skin tone and changing it for outrageous colours. I’ve always really liked typography as well, so I always try to incorporate writing into my work.
Your work feels quite sad..
Who else inspires you?
Is there a limit to how much of yourself you’d reveal in your work?
Where are ya based?
