Why did you pick this picture?
I chose this as it’s a perfect representation of my style and one of my favourite so far.
Where did the idea for this art come from?
I don’t really plan my work in advance. I listen to music get in ‘the zone’ and the artwork emerges.
What does this art mean to you?
I think that art is a door to another world that we can step through and escape reality. Just like when we dream or listen to music. This picture symbolises that concept. It’s all about opening your mind and unlocking different worlds.
What can you tell us about yourself?
I’ve had no training but spent a lot of time drawing since I was young. My favourite artists are Ralph Steadman, Salvadore Dali and Picasso. I love how social media has opened up the world of art so now we have galleries in our pockets we can carry round and dive into anywhere. I think that the power of imagination is very important and something we need to hold onto, one idea can change the world.
What more can you tell us about your art?
It’s very psychedelic and each picture has layers of meaning woven into it. I’m fascinated with Perspective and how one thing can look the same to two people. This is a theme I’m currently exploring and playing around with. I create pictures that you can look at again and see something you missed the first time. I also direct a lot of positive messages to the viewer and want to spark their creativity and feel good about life.
