THE VIRTUAL LANDSCAPE
When photography and traditional art meet. The Virtual Landscape is the second collection, and one where I decided to do a contrasting approach by highlighting some of the more tacky, robust constructions within our society through a photographic lens together with the inhomogonous shapes found in nature. The rule was set from the start - all that is manmade is perceived through the photograph, and all nature is shaped through traditional painting techniques, mainly acrylics and inking.

Somewhere in the middle, there's a fine point where technology and nature meet. Fallen Giants is a collection of intergalactic humanoid creatures that take on the shape of various cities. Each one has been chosen as a part of what influence it has had on my life and artistic exploration.
The 21st Century is a series that depicts some of the societal archetypes in a black and white comicbook style, undertoned by street photography. The idea is to highlight various aspects of society that are slowly devolving into a corrupt state, examples being capitalism, alcoholism, violence and racism. Despite these, it is essential that we all as a people hold our hands tight and work together for a prosper future.
