My work is a mix of Pop art and classical painting. It’s a bit of a contradiction, but I love the beauty and seriousness of classical art, and the playful non-seriousness of Pop art. I love to paint, however for me it is just a means of expression. The essence of my work is the little fantasy world inside each painting, inspired by the costumes and inflatable toys our society has found a demand for. Using these costumes and toys I reinterpret elements of our culture, creating a slightly twisted version of the familiar. I also pull inspiration from fashion photography, incorporating the surreal atmosphere and the model’s elegance as a balance to the playful nature of the other subject matter.
