Born 1963 in Halifax, Yorkshire, UK
Lives and works in London

He graduated from Goldsmith’s College in London in 1986 and he still lives and works in London. As a motif he uses the miniature automobiles that he has collected since he was little to create paintings. The array of model cars, trucks, trains, and various buses ranging from local buses and school buses to double deckers, summons recollections from our own childhood. Also, from the landscape and sunlight reflected through the train window, and the precisely detailed depiction of scratches and peeling paint, we can interpret the time that the artist shared with these motifs, as well as feel the affection and warmth that English people have for things that have traditionally existed in the U.K. Contrary to the cars’ precise details, the backgrounds are uniformly plain, which not only serve to illuminate the colors of the cars but also to trigger viewers’ imaginations.(TOMIO KOYAMA GALLERY, Tokyo)
