Tell us about where your artistic fascination with urban centres/cities stems from?
“I draw a pretty direct line of inspiration and influence from my surrounding environment. Having lived in big cities all my life I guess it was a natural progression for me to start documenting and painting the places I inhabited.
“I think cities provide a nourishing environment for the cultures they contain and as a result are often shaped by it. Cultures such as ethnic diversity, art, and music all change and form a unique aesthetic and atmosphere of a city which is something is something that makes certain cities so unique and interesting.
“This atmosphere and vibe of these cities is something I find fascinating and strive to incorporate into my work.”
