AT THE INTERSECTION OF Pop-ART & CONTEMPORARY URBAN STREET ART

mixed media, graffiti-style pop artist and fine art photographer who credits
growing up in the gritty British industrial city of Bradford, Yorkshire – the

London as early influences for his appreciation of an urban art aesthetic. His influences
include Shepard Fairey, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg and
of course Banksy.

images and text on stretched canvas punctuated with bold, vibrant layers of
acrylic and spray paint and a final layer of lacquer providing a glossy
He currently resides with his family
