United Kingdom
I was born in 91' and grew up in south-east suburban England. I started collaging back in 2008 when I was in college where it was easy and accessible at the time. I never knew I wanted to collage. It was one of those things that I picked up and it grew with me, and as it did, I began to identify and appreciate more of its subtleties. I then started to get involved in online art communities and began sharing work alongside artists that were influencing me at the time.
Soon after that I began to get involved in mail art which I found was a great way to meet new people and to build up a network of artists. I now participate in several online community platforms that all share work from other collage artists around the world and I still like to collaborate regularly.
One of my favourite things about collage is getting to look through vintage literature. I can really get a sense of what things were like before I was born and it always seems so surreal.
The basis of my work seems to be focusing on exposing the mechanical processes and trivialites of human behaviour and consciousness as a whole. I find interest in the study of patterns in nature and try to incorporate this within my compositions. Like memory, my work is composed of fragments of information and imagery designed to evoke an emotional response.
The materials that I prefer to use are sourced from aged publications that have degraded in colour and fashion, which are then gone on to the use of traditional cut and paste methods. My works are never pre meditated which is interesting to see how i am confronted with the processes that go on whilst creating. It becomes a very personal experience, open to my own interpretion.
I would describe my work as a kind of visual poetry, gesturing towards themes of popular culture, mass media, and the psychoanalysis of human nature, particularly in western culture.

A lot of inspiration came to me from the collage community of deviantArt so i have a lot of people to thank for that.

Nice work, dramatic imagery with subdued colors. Yes, futurism too.
