"I am a creator. When I let go of what I know amazing things take shape."

I love to experiment and see what happens. My art is all about the journey and the process. Exposing myself to new experiences and taking imagination further.

Bio

I am an Australian multi-disciplinary artist, best known for my large format light-reactive works on plexiglass. I am also creator of ‘Living Art’ concept. My studio and creative space were in the basement of a multi-level carpark in Canberra, Australia before the coronavirus pandemic. As of now, I have opened up my home studio to continue and push my art even further.

I graduated with Honours at the School of Art, Australian National University. Having some street art practice in the late 2000’s in Newtown, Sydney opened my eyes to new ways of expressing myself. With a new momentum built after my street art practice, I starting putting together group and solo art exhibitions with my large format artworks. Two of my solo exhibitions Stretchmarks of the Universe in 2015 and Voyage in 2016 made the national news and my art was propelled into the national domain. From then I teamed up with a Canberra entrepreneur who gave me a studio at his carpark, and the rest is history. 

From then I setup gorilla art spaces that got media time, including my carpark studio. As I pushed the public discourse on the role of art in our public spaces, I was invited through one of the spaces I setup for an international residency in Germany by the founders of VIVID Sydney and Singapore. Later in the same trip I was invited as a VIP artist to Positions, Berlin Art Fair 2016. 2018 marked my first feature at The Other Art Fair with a detailed travel VLOG of the experience.  

Currently, I am collaborating with national architects, musicians, videographers, developers and international companies on leading edge art projects.
