Could you please tell us about the creative process since initial thoughts to completion?
The ‘New Era’ piece submitted to Tribe 2016 was created using Faber Castell polychromos colour pencil on 300gsm Card. I tend to start with a very rough sketch and then add in the
layers of detail. It can take anywhere between 1week and 3 months to create a brand new piece depending on the complexity, size and the exhibition deadline.
What would be your dream collaboration?
My dream collaboration with current artists would be Mason Storm and Josh Keyes. With dead ones it would be Salvador Dali and M.C Escher.
Who has influenced you the most?
Banksy has been a huge influence but I think that goes without saying. I’m saying it anyway. Artists like Alison Jackson have inspired me to play with lookalikes and cheeky
interpretations of stern situations whereas the skill with which M.C Escher created his drawings continues to drive me to be better.
What other artists do you admire? What is your favourite piece of art?
I admire a lot of the old Masters from Dali to Rembrandt, Caravaggio, Michael Angelo the list is endless. My favourite piece of art changes depending on what I am currently into.
