The notion of collage is the basis for all my work, attempting to create new connections between visual and conceptual ideas and realizing these through an array of creative methods. Multidisciplinary projects spanning across illustration, collage, photography and scanography, to animation, sculpture and book-binding.
I visually interpret topics of creative architecture, parkour, and conscious playground design, thinking about the physical environments we inhabit through an open, playful and philosophical lens while questioning the confined subtext of public spaces and architecture through various means.
I've hand-made an architectural collage book, STONE CODEX, and worked with sculpture in the process; produced two animated short films, one of which I've been lucky to screen at two film festivals; worked with parkour group STORROR and produced cover art for Tom la Haine's THE FUZZ; and founded UNSOUND STUDIO, a company producing hand-printed clothing among other goods and prints.
