You have a really nice contrast within your work, how would you define your style?
I try to make my style and art present a mixture of figurative and abstract motifs. I aim to find the juxtaposed balance within my pieces between a harsh mix of organic and geometric shapes.
You’ve managed to do this really well, and where do you pull inspiration for your subject matter?
I find inspiration for my art in a lot of different things however I often get inspired by music, nature, other artists and general day to day life.
Nice work. Now, you don’t look like the kind of person that wants to just make work in a studio, have you managed to do any travelling on the back of your art?
Last year was actually the first time I had done any proper travel, other than Australia. In April after collaborating on a project with Kathmandu, I travelled to Nepal and completed a trek to Everest Base Camp with the Himalayan Trust - a trip which artist, Sean Duffell, was also on which was a bonus! Following this at the end of last year, my partner and I spent 3 months living in the USA which we initially went over for a 6-week art residency in California with Street Artist in Residency. Finally, prior to the travel ban, I spent almost a month in Melbourne for the Can't do Tomorrow Festival.
Wow, that sounds like a busy year, I’d say if it wasn’t for COVID19, that would have been an amazing platform for another year of travel. If COVID19 wasn’t a thing, is there anywhere you were hoping to travel to in the near future, whether it’s for painting or just general travel?
I was really keen on travelling to Europe and the UK at some point soon to do some work and spend some time possibly living over there, however that's all on hold at the moment until we see how COVID19 and the travel ban plays out.
I’ve just returned from the UK, and trust me, you’re not missing out on anything at the moment, other than the good weather.
