What is the concept behind your current series of work?

My work can be easily identified throughout the city through my use of monotone portraits depicting icons of both social and pop culture.

Lately I’ve been playing around with colour and transparency within the portraits which is producing some interesting results.

What does your studio look like?

In the studio I have a large 12ft table which I work on when cutting stencils behind me is a paint wall which has around 1400 cans of paint and the walls in between are full of paint strokes and splashes. When I’m working thin beats are pumping and there’s usually a huge mess.

Who inspires you creatively?

Music for me is a huge influencer, I love 90’s hip hop music and you can see elements of that throughout my work. Other artists I admire would be Banksy, Blek Le Rat, Shepard Fairey
