Stampede, oil on canvas, 230 x 148 cm, 2020-2021             




Coming from a background of graffiti, the urban landscape has always been a place of engagement for me. As a person I am dwarfed and alienated by my surroundings; as a painter I may engange these surroundings. If street art is my engagement with the urban landscape, oil and canvas is its primary echo, reflecting on my memories of people and places.
