Nice work, I think selling artwork is something a lot of young artists struggle to deal with. Invercargill is quite a small town, what would you say the pros and cons of being based in a smaller town are?
I would say the pros are, whenever you paint in public you will get noticed. Cons are, not enough potential buyers for your artwork.
That’s a very valid point, it pays to have an online presence in a situation like that. What led you to make the works that you make and how would you define your style?
I started off creating LoFi music with a lot of electronic psychedelic style in it and I wanted to translate that in to an art form that will make people psyched. That inspired a lot of scrolls (nerds candy), science and Japanese pop art with colours and biomorphic forms mixed together.
My style has a mixture of abstract psychedelic pop surrealism and contemporary flare.
That’s really awesome, you can really see those elements in your work. Where would you like to see yourself in the future?
I would like to see myself working with a few artist that I look up to and also be invited to live mural festivals like Pow! Wow! worldwide, etc. I would also like to travel the world, have an exhibition in all of the galleries I dream of being featured in and become a famous living contemporary artist in New Zealand.
Those are ambitious goals but certainly the goals you want to be heading towards, I can’t wait to see things unfold for you.
