A6 (15 x 10cm) Original Artwork
Signed on verso
A naive artist, a graphic artist, a pop artist... I am a slice of each. My style is simple and direct. The theme in most of my art revolves around reminding myself, and everybody else, how great and stupid humans can be and therefore how great and stupid life can be.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
The theme in most of my work revolves around reminding myself, and everyone else how great and stupid humans can be. I try to focus on the sweet and ridiculous aspects of humankind. We all try to make dreams come true but often stumble in the process, so if I can portray characters in a way that makes a viewer from another walk of life empathise and relate to a fellow human being, then that is a success to me. Ultimately, I am just trying to lighten my mood and hopefully brighten someone else’s.
