Lives and works in London.


He says:

I am fascinated by the unique way we consciously or subconsciously filter and gather visual material on a daily basis. My drawings and paintings serve as meticulous documentation of this intuitive filtering on a personal level. I want my work to reflect unmistakable qualities from the photographic source material, but at the same time I strive to protect the qualities of the materials I work with - graphite and paint.
