About my artwork
I am currently engaged in a longterm project based on the media, The work conveys my personal concern for the way the media around us manipulates and controls the people. We do not need half of what we are influenced to buy,for the benefit of the few. I am not anti capitalist simply anti greed.
Artists I like
I like many of the more traditional artists such as Giacometti, Picasso, Davinci,I also like some more modern artists however the turbulant nature of contemporary art in England at the moment, means i am unsure of what alot of what other artists, stand for as they seem to seek to hide their ideas behind to much text instead of working in the visual medium they wish to represent.
I am, interested in the medium of film and animation. I am also deeply involved with community projects within the artistic spectrum and am extremely interested in what art can give to the youth of today in terms of problem solving and self belief.
Yes - your work looks pretty awesome!! Interesting.
Great website btw. My main thing is photography @ the mo. Still hanging in there with the odd portrait. I didn't like Swindon College very much - it killed off my inspiration rather than inspired it. Great to see u doing so well :)
Hi Nick – happy new year, I had a good one thanks – went to Lincoln and celebrated it with some old Uni Mates. Sorry it has taken me so long to reply, but I have been painting like a mad man. I have a show opening up at View from the top on Wednesday private view 6 – 9 pm – I hope to see you there. We can have a good catch up- Steve
