Art is resistance I’ve always drawn; maybe first because I didn’t want to face a part of the reality around me. Thereafter, I’ve drawn to create and express my own reality, my personal vision of beings and things. And to confront the realities of everybody, to create a meeting, an echo… I’ve studied in an…

Ritualistic Artworks I am self-educated when it comes to art. My biggest inspiration is my father, he’s famous for pioneering ‘shadow art’. where he illuminates a pile of trash and a highly detailed shadow comes out of it. So as a kid there was always material flying around the house. The self-titled Iron Maiden album…

Awestruck by beauty and imagination I don’t really have much art training. I grew up in and near the woods in Oregon, and always loved studying and being in nature, so that informs my work.  My family didn’t watch much TV, and I would draw to pass time. I stopped making art as a young…

Listen to your inner voice Drawing, was one of the first things I did. I kept sketchbooks and drawing pads throughout my childhood, drawing the usual array of action heroes, zombies, vehicles, comic book characters and other such boyish things. For my GCSE projects at 15/16 years old in Swansea, I utilised my tech drawing…

Neo-minstry-smut-thrash I have had some education in graphic design and film. Mostly it comes from sitting alone for days on end in a dark room. I put my drawings up online for people to see and was hired. A site called ’emptees’ years ago helped spread my art. The Wacom is about 20 years old…

In fact, I conducted my first experiments on an Atari St back in…
