As most artists, he started drawing at a young age and was encouraged by his family to test everything. He is currently fascinated by traditional chinese art and has developed his own interpretation of it. His art is about speed, accuracy, the line, the human gaze, eyes, people, contact. New ideas are tested on small size until they are ‘autographed’, meaning that they can be drawn as fast as a signature. This speed gives the line a dynamic effect. He sells his work online via his shop here and via the Saatchi Gallery in London. All works are wrapped in acid-free paper and rolled on a cardboard tube. This is than packed in a larger cardboard tube and sealed.
His work is shown on Instagram.
