He is one of a growing breed of post-digital ‘freestyle’ artists who’s
work encompasses everything from film, photography, painting,
illustration and sound. Best known for his award-winning music, he has performed
around the world, often using photographs taken on his travels
as his starting point for new work. He is currently creating a series of works that explore the use of grain, whether it be digital, reliefs or painting.
