CULTURAL

 

What is culture? Is it a way of life? Is it general customs and beliefs, of a particular group of people at a specific time? It is music, art, theatre, literature? Or does culture evolve from organised religion or conflict? As a kid, I was fascinated by the behaviour of people and somewhat amused by it all. There appeared to be a general rule to function as a unit, a form of collective understanding of fair and favourable exchange. Whatever it was, all I could do was participate in the show and occasionally question the experience. I really tried to believe in what was often presented to me for consumption, but something inside did not want it,

Culture is a series of artworks created to record specific moments of thought and experience.

Each piece is a visual influenced by my understanding of the world along with narratives that dissect both my outer and inner perception.

  

ALIGHT CITY

The power in your city lies deep within its structure.

Machines generate movement in the streets, pipes allow the flow of energy to the machines, and light brings life to everything.

POP QUEEN

Surely there is more to the queen than the image that is stamped in our mind.

AGES

The agricultural, industrial, and technological ages have left their mark on this earth.

Will the spiritual age be the pawn that dethrones the age of man?

MUSIC

When I hear music I see

colours, patterns, shapes, energy, shadows, auras, candy floss, pretty birds, the galaxy, my future, my past, love, fear, pain, belief, awareness, compassion, Debussy, desire, passion, contrast, the devil and God.

7 notes create a million masterpieces.

GOLDEN BALLS - Tribute to David Beckham

 

The meteoric rise of an idol is no coincidence. It begins with a natural talent.

If discovered, the talent is exposed to the people who then transform it into an endless stream of material possibility.

BOXING DAY

 

Life is gift-wrapped in a broken box.

You consume in a box, put your money in a box, eat from a box, hang your square hat in a box, watch the box, work in a box, drive in a box, type on a box, call your mom on a box, watch time in a box, display awards in a box, go up and down in an electric box, and die in a box. 

 

There are no straight lines in nature, how many do you experience in your day? 

HEAD OF STATE

As a young artist, I was somewhere between a self-created hell and an industry that was made up of machines,

rules and dead ends. I instinctively kept moving towards a principle.

I am art, I am industry, I am the head of State!

BRICKLANE

 The freedom of art lives in Bricklane, the shadow of Shoreditch awaits gentrification and monetization of the free.

CUT AND TASTE

The city experience is a sequence of snapshots and soundbites.

Many come for a cut of the action while others are attracted to taste the edge.

INDUSTRIAL MAGIC

 

Manchester is a place where dreams do come true. 

The bees make the honey, the honey fuels imagination, imagination creates the ethic, the ethic produces magic.

GIRLPOWER

Three women are exposed to influence the girl.

They present to the masses. They decorated the material world.

They elevate stardom.

If you know the three, you are powerless to know the girl.

(Cheryl,Kim,Miley)

CAPITOL

SEX, DRUGS, MONEY AND POWER .... DO YOU HAVE the CAPITOL?

FREEDOM

 

I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.

I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them.

 

I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.
 

AGEING DESTINY

 

The Fourth Industrial Revolution can compromise humanity's traditional sources of meaning - work, community, family, and identity - or it can lift humanity into a new collective and moral consciousness based on a sense of shared destiny.

 

The choice is ours.
 

FIND NO ENEMY

If there is no enemy inside

No enemy outside can ever do you harm.

Fear and love cannot occupy the same space, find thy self.

EMOJI LOVE

 

Old fashioned love is no longer required. Nowadays the experience begins with symbols on electronic boxes.

No more dates, real interactions or bad experiences....stay still and explore each other with emoji's.

 

BEE WORKER - A million bees maketh the man

Industry is raw, rough, challenging, heartbreaking, moving, cold, fake, oppressive,

controlling, uninspiring, depressing,soul destroying, uncomfortable, painful, and black.

Once you embrace all of the aboveall that’s left is the WORKER.

MANCUNIAN ROUTE

The root of Manchester lies deep within its lines, structures and shapes. The soul of Manchester lies deep within its nature. From the sky, Manchester appears rural with splashes of industry and human activity. The roads that lead into the body of the city make web-like patterns that lead into smaller bodies of life. In the day, this vision is rich with greens and browns and at night, all you can see is electric yellows and blues.

EMPIRE

 

Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe. 

AR' TEA

The Mancunian Last Supper.

Lowry trying his best to create another masterpiece while a group of fellow locals try their best to disturb him.

Under the table are their dirty secrets.

( Featuring, Lowry, Jai Sol, Mick Hucknall, Les Dawson, Bet Lynch, Gallagher brothers, Morrissey, Mrs Merton, Bez, Fergie, Tony Wilson & Danny Boyle)

MANCHESTER MAGIC PUDDLE - 2013

Manchester​ ​is​ ​my​ ​miracle​ ​city.
I​ ​experienced​ ​many​ ​colours​ ​and​ ​shapes​ ​here.​ ​I​ ​observed​ ​the​ ​movements​ ​of​ ​those​ ​who​ ​gave​ ​it​ ​life​ ​and​ ​ignored​ ​the stillness​ ​of​ ​those​ ​who​ ​fell​ ​into​ ​its​ ​magic​ ​puddle.

 

WONDERLUST

At a glance, the city’s magic is utterly seductive.

However, the closer you look, the wonder offers nothing more than repetitive patterns in undefined lines.
