What he dislikes most about contemporary culture:

It’s probably people’s dependency on social media of which I too am somewhat guilty.

I was maybe 4, it was snowing and I was walking through the woods near my home in Sussex.

People that inspire your work:

My recent works have been inspired by family, friends and people I’ve had close relationships with. The connections I have with them are crucial to my paintings.

Who represents his animal spirit:

Maybe some kind of snake.

The best thing right now:

Having the opportunity to study art in Japan for the last year has been inspirational, while also returning to such an exciting place as Camberwell/South London.
