Very first approach with Art: feelings.

My earliest memory of anything artistic is being in a high chair as a baby and scribbling lots of circles on a piece of paper using red crayon.

Artistic background.

I wasn’t interested in art until I was 21, which is when I started making posters for bands and venues in Manchester for fun. Every poster I have made has been a photograph because I decided to make posters after getting an iPhone for the first time and I can’t draw or paint but I had visual ideas so I would do them as photos on my iPhone instead.

 

After a few months I stopped because I couldn’t afford to keep spending so much time on something I didn’t earn any money doing and at the time had no aspirations of being an artist as a career.

The birth of your famous photographic poster project. Idea, technique and aim.

 

Around a year and a half after I stopped making posters I decided to try and make film posters and finance doing it by selling them online. At first i just made individual posters, and then I have this idea of a suitcase with a film title on surrounded by objects from a film, and then I quickly realised that could to applied to many films and made into a series.

You are a Cinema lover, what are your  sources of inspiration? How do you choose the movies to realize your artworks?

 

I like to make posters for films which have a strong and interesting colour palette, which is why I have done a few for Wes Anderson, because although his films aren’t  my favourites, I think visually he is one of my favourite directors. It also helps that his films have such unique objects in them.

 

 

 

 

 

How much time do you dedicate to each single work? 

 

On average it’s probably around 2 weeks.

 

 

 

 

 

What was the reaction of people to your posters?

 

The reaction so far has been great, a lot of my attention has come from people sharing my posters online.

A movie that you love in a particular way and…why?

I love Playtime by Jacques Tati, because it is such a singular vision but on a grand scale, and how there can be 5 different scenes going on at the same time and each time you watch it it’s like having a new experience because of all the little details you notice.

What are you working on? Current projects.

Currently I’m working on a series of Object Portraits, where I am making portraits of people using objects which have sentimental value to them, anyone who wants one made can contact me.

 

 

 

 

The future: artistic plans and…dreams.

To make more, develop and to start new series of posters.

Art is…

Anything man-made that you think is beautiful.
