"In London, the harsh realities of life are evident all around us, crime, pollution, erosion, destitution. Yet if you scratch the surface, wherever you look are radiant faces, full of hope and optimism. Strong communities, acts of kindness & beings all living out their purpose are all evident in London. It proves that wherever you go, whatever you see, human and indeed all life forms always find a way...."
"...(London) is a place of stark contrasts and contradictions: Beauty, nature & divine perfection intercept technology, commercialisation, capitalism Like a huge cog in a global wheel that is powering the whole world, and when you witness it close hand & feel the energy run through you, it’s like nothing I’ve ever felt before. My art is always an attempt to reflect that energy, that paradox: you find decaying cityscapes intersecting sharp, crisp lines..."
"... My practice is an attempt to reflect this, essentially it's a juxtaposition of Beautiful crisp lines & fluro colour colliding with a fucked up mess of grime and dirt. We are all isolated and alone, yet united together. We are nothing more than the sum of our combined parts. We have all helped to create this metropolis and every single person, every little step, helps develop the whole disgusting, beautiful ecosystem that we call London, England.
