I am currently engaged in a long term project based on the media. The work conveys my personal concern for the way the media around us manipulates and controls the people. We do not need half of what we are influenced to buy, for the benefit of the few. I am not anti capitalist simply anti greed. My current practice is mostly based around the idea of taking a commercial medium such as illustration and subverting and scaling it to a size so as to make it completely useless for its original purpose. Taking the control back to the creator and all the while poking fun at television and the media obsessed world we live in.
