More About This Artist...
Studied Fine Art at Central St Martin's London. Since graduating in 1995 I have been featured in numerous exhibitions including shows in New York and Europe. I have also had several solo shows 'Suck it and See' in Soho. "Off the Wall' with thecentralhouse in 2003 and my sold out solo show 'Yeah, Yeah, Yeah' with Forster Gallery in 2007 and "Anti Gravity" in 2008. I have also ran numerous youth workshops working with teenagers who have challenging behavior.
I have been featured in The Observer, The Daily Telegraph, The Independent Review, Time Out Review, Hip Hop Connection, Graphotism, Blag and New York Magazine The intergalactic Times, Rojo,Creative Review, London newspapers, Evening Standard, Metro and London News.
My work has been commissioned by Benson & Hedges, Nike and fashion designer, Antonio Berardi amongst others.
My work is in many ways is a reflection of my background both as a graffiti artist and a fine art student where I became increasingly interested in Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art. During this period I was learning about art history, producing works on canvas and painting graffiti. I believe both elements of school and street have shaped my work in a manner that would not have been achieved if I would have simply studied at art school or if I only practiced as a graffiti artist.
