Show RCA work

Major project:

Humour, Irony and Celebration

Installation with the theme of 'Grand Celebration', a mixture of fairy tale, irony and non-existent objects.


  • I usually bring everyday scenes to my paintings, changing the characters, adding grotesque, irony, fairy tales and humour. There’s a lot of drama going on in my work when all the linear, abstract and mixed-media elements merge together in the on-going theatrical chaos. I make my works on transparent fabric with silicone, and installations with plaster sculptures and ceramics.
