Enviromentalistic - Mores dates in the UK

I never wanted a normal job or to live a normal life. I never aspired to work for anyone other than
myself. Repetition bores me. Traffic aggravates me. Stampedes scare me. I started doing stuff on the streets as a way to reach a wider demographic of people with my “unlearn” message; the positive reaction kept me going. Self-expression in a public environment, to me, is for the most part based on truth and not motivated by commerce… and that had a strong appeal to me as well.

I like to channel ideas, thoughts or messages into my work that I wish to convey that I otherwise might never express. I also have a personal goal to expose as many people to art as possible and to honor the power art has when it’s created and accepted.

I like to work fast, unconsciously and spontaneously. I concentrate on good brushes and paint, pulling materials from my immediate environment and preparing my surfaces. I like to work on 5 pieces at a time and watch them develop in unison. I have been pushing the level of integrity in my work a lot though lately, looking deeper into color and mood to better capture and translate the human experience.

My work utilizes a range of mediums, composed of wood, canvas, chipboard, oil and acrylic paints with found materials, paper, and pen and ink. Textures, patterns and shapes build a setting in which the human form is embedded, creating a visual representation of the complexities of the human experience and environment.
