(Born 1969) is an English painter and mural artist currently

My practice makes good use of
technology at almost every stage, it's a great tool for the
augmentation of my creative output. This is a collaboration that
brings a randomness and a level of complexity I'd unlikely to be
able to achieve without the technology. Much of my current research
is centred around Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the role it can
have in art. I think it's early days, but the
technology looks like it will help artists deliver extraordinary
new inspirations and methods of expression.
I paint mainly with oils on canvas,
embracing excess with large high-colour maximalist images. I draw
energy from the human achievements I see now and those I envisage
for the future. I describe my work as an ungoverned composite of
influences with a glow of Neo-Futurism edging into the foreground.
The images I create contain no lies or exaggerations, it's the
complete absence of any reality that I hope makes my work truthful.
I am not a political/social artist but I'm drawn to the idea of the
future and our safe transition into it.
