Its all about colour - pigment and light - oh and a splash of creative typography.A very early adopter of graffiti, I first started painting walls in Bristol during the early eighties. Went to Art School to study fine art, then had to make some money. I started working as a graphic designer, cutting my design teeth on flyers for clubs and raves etc. For the past 20 years I have mostly produced digital artwork. Recently I have returned to painting working with text and colour using contemporary urban art techniques.
