In the late 1990s I re-discovered drawing and calligraphy. Over the next 20 years I perused asemic calligraphy with passion. The journey took me deep into the world of flow, performances in bizarre places, exhibitions across Europe and the USA, the art industry, and deep inside myself. I've put my paint brush down now... no more painting. I've taken calligraphy into a different part of my life...
In 2015 Gerngross agreed to transport my studio into their main display window. I spent a week working on Eris, a Greek Goddess. It was an amazing experience... 48 hours of non-stop painting, in an incredibly hot, very public space... but strangely private, because I kept my back to the audience and, the display window is sound proof... rocked it
I did a lot of painting in discos and night clubs ... Why? It was fun, great sound systems, strange environment to practice zen style calligraphy, and it was all about bringing painting to a place where the viewers got a real kick out of seeing the painting grow over night.
