2dzine is a website to showcase my portfolio of work.
The work is predominantly photographic, but also showcases other
work of varied media - artwork, drawing, painting, installations
& web design.
Some of it is professional and follows a client brief such as the
web designs, whereas the illustrative artwork and installations
are of a speculative & political nature.
The photography is a documentation of certain people, places and
events that I have either met or come into contact with through
travel, work or life in general.
My work is based on a common theme of the individuals and societies
inner demons, consumerism, materialism & our throw away culture,
authoritarianism & the utopian dream, "yob culture"
or rather society's intolerances.
To say what artists and films I have been influenced by would be
too great a task. There are far too many to mention, however I have
been influenced by the writings of George Orwell, Henry David Thoreau,
Irvine Welsh, Jack Kerouac & Allen Ginsberg, and admire the
story telling techniques of many comic book/graphic novel artists
& writers, Neil Gaiman, Dave McKean, Simon Bisley, Carlos Ezquerra,
Frank Miller and many more.
