|Heroes||I'm also heavily influenced by music as well as art and always paint with something blaring out on the hi-fi. I have always been attracted to the glamour of the 60s and mod culture in general and as an artist I'm obviously inspired by other artists and much prefer the modernists to the old style classic painters, but appreciate a wide variety of art, the biggest influence artists I like are Andy Warhol, Ron English, Keith Haring, Roy Lichtenstien, Piet Mondrian, Willem de Kooning, Damien Hurst, Banksy and Francis Bacon. Banksy art is a especially hot at the moment and for good reason as its so current and cool. I tend to work with sketches, acrylics, mixed media, stencils, corel painter, photoshop and love to experiment with new media. I'm a fan of simplistic symbolism in paintings like Warhol and Opie painted and some of Banksy art too also features great symbolism, lush paintings that are rich and great on the eye.
