‘Concrete Jungle’

Limited Edition on canvas (95), size:  30″ x 30″

This piece took inspiration from one of my favourite cities ‘New York’ and one my favourite music artists and famous New Yorker; JAY-Z. The title of the painting coming from an inspirational line in the chorus of his song about New York; “Empire State of Mind”; “New York, Concrete jungle where dreams are made of”.

The Jaguar in the painting representing JAY-Z, climbing up a lamppost, signifying JAY-Z’s ascent from the streets of the tough Brooklyn streets to the top of the music world and living the high life around the extremely affluent streets of Midtown Manhattan.

There is also a hint towards the impacts of deforestation on the habitat of wild animals such as the Jaguar and what the future now holds for these magnificent animals.

Going Underground’

Limited Edition on canvas (95), size:  30″ x 30″

Growing up in the 80s, Paul Weller with his time in ‘The Jam’ especially was a big influence on me and British culture as a whole and he’s continued to be influential ever since. He was therefore the inspiration for this painting with arguably his and The Jam’s most famous and iconic song ‘Going Underground’ being the focal point and title for the piece.

Paul Weller is often referred to as the ‘Modfather’ and the key colours of the famous ‘Mod’ circular symbol (red, white and blue) are throughout the piece. He is also someone known for being forthright with his views and definitely not one to take fools gladly, therefore the use of the Tiger to symbolise Paul Weller is quite apt.

LIMITED EDITIONS


‘Born to be Wild’

Limited Edition on canvas (150) size:  20″ x 20″

Inspiration for this piece came from seeing a famous photograph of the iconic actor Marlon Brando, taken for the Movie poster of the 1953 film ‘The Wild One’, in the photograph he’s leaning over the front of a motorcycle and is coolness personified.

I’ve re-enacted this pose in this piece using a classic Harley Davidson (Road King) motorcycle with it’s chrome glinting in the sunshine and featuring in my opinion the coolest of all animals a Giant Panda, leaning on the handle bars in a similar fashion, contemplating a road trip across the iconic route 66 through Monument Valley.

‘Licenced to Chill’

Limited Edition on canvas (150) size:  20″ x 20″

This piece was inspired by ‘Casino Royale’ the James Bond film starring Daniel Craig, the casino poker scene was synonymous with the film and I believe is a classic of modern cinema. I’ve always loved the suave and coolness of James Bond whether it be Sean Connery or Daniel Craig which was so evident in the Casino Royale film.

In this painting I imagined the Rockhopper penguin has interrupted a high stakes poker game, the penguin naturally suited to the black tie dress code with an appropriate Martini shaken not stirred, the infamous James bond PPK pistol on the table and the mischievous look in the penguin’s eye.

‘California Dreaming’

Limited Edition on canvas (150) size:  20″ x 20″

David Hockney’s paintings have been a huge inspiration to me over the years, especially his classic painting ‘A Bigger Splash’ which made his career and has become one of the world’s most iconic paintings. That painting was of a pool in front of a minimalist 50s house in Los Angeles. As a background I’ve utilised another 50s LA house; the iconic ‘Stahl House’ overlooking LA from the Hollywood Hills, with it’s stylish architecture it’s been utilised in a number of films  over the years.

Although Hockney’s ‘A Bigger Splash’ didn’t include any figures, I imagined  a Polar Bear coming up from a dive in the pool of the cool LA home, enjoying the sunshine and sprawling view of LA with a hint towards the impacts of global warming on the polar bear’s habitat and question what the future may hold.
