The collection is inspired by British Pop, Rock, Punk and Fashion from late 1960's to today. Using known icons and juxtaposing dissonant elements the works explore the use of a diverse mixed media such as collage, found objects, graffiti paint, neon light, vinyl moulding and silk-screen printed aluminium.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The intent is to keep researching, exploring and extending the collection and install some of it in various public contexts, mostly hospitality spaces to encourage discussions amongst staff and customers.

An ongoing research into multiculturalism and inter-generational attitude towards popular arts and culture. What influences from the world go into British culture? and what is the reverse flow? What are cultural memes? And how do they propagate? Is being British a fact? An attitude? A non-relevance?
This is an ongoing challenge and investigation, trying to find ways to share thoughts and ideas with the others. How to start discussions without causing offence or indifference?
