About the Artist

He takes us into a world both strange and sensitive, imaginative and real. His detailed paintings lead us to ask questions about contemporary issues: globalisation, the place of new media and virtual relationships between individuals. The paintings allow us to see what makes us universal, and at the same time unique. Most of his work is on plaid fabric which is his canvas and enables him to paint according to the pattern of the material. Thus he must work within the constraints of the cloth: its size, pattern, and material to create a pictorial language of his own. The result is a particular energy where each aspect of colour and texture is considered.
