East London Born artist now based in Hornchurch Essex. I have always been into Art and Design but my work really excelled during my time at college when I studied A-level Art.
I would describe myself as an artist wanting to offer something different with a modern twist.My earlier work was heavily influenced by artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Chuck Close.
Through experimentation I started creating images using Swarovski Crystals which led to me designing and producing Bespoke Garments which soon caught the eye of various celebrities.
I gained most of my exposure through my work with various different music artist such as Bruno Mars and Hip Hop act Wu Tang Clan who wore my Swarovski Crystallized garments on stage while performing. I have also worked closely with many asian music artist.
My meticulous eye and obsession for Swarovski Crystallized Elements made me want to pursue and experiment creating portraits at a larger scale. I have based my first portrait's around the concept of Icons and Legends some of whom are very inspirational and timeless.
The process of creating my Art consists of manipulating the desired image which allows me to distinguish each section, shape and size. Once satisfied I create the image by placing each Crystal by hand and securing it with heat.
As my style has developed over time I have created pieces with greater detail experimenting with different colours. The largest piece I have created to date is of Rihanna which is produced using 23,000 Swarovski Crystals all 3mm in size. I love challenging myself to create the unthinkable and feel a great sense of achievement when that last crystal is placed into position ready to WOW my audience.
