I am a multimedia artist and performer with an interest in sustainability, repurposing, and the intersection between art and technology.
I graduated in Scientific and Natural History Illustration in 1996 during which time I also pursued DJing and organising underground club nights. Since then I have been on a journey through countless design and artistic pursuits. I embrace all manner of traditional and digital media, often collaborating with other artists.
I have exhibited paintings, drawings, upcycled furniture and interactive installations while also producing live audiovisual performances and working professionally in the fields of graphic design, illustration, UI design, motion graphics, animation and vjing.
As part of the first generation of digital VJ’s, I was recognised among the top 8 European VJ’s at the London International Music Show in 2008. This achievement led to a commission for a pilot programme for the BBC and animation work for renowned brands such as Nintendo and Coca-Cola. I have also created visuals for artists like Above & Beyond and Emilio Merone and have had the privilege of sharing stages with legendary DJ’s like Greg Wilson and Astrix. My VJ performances have taken place at music festivals including Shambala, Noisily, and The Big Chill.
From 2010 to 2020, I served as the co-director of VJ London, where I organized meet-ups, workshops, and festivals to promote and nurture live visuals and technology-based art forms. This included hosting numerous VJ meetings, three editions of Sound on Vision, London’s Dead, and two editions of AV Depot. These efforts were recognized and mentioned in the book \”Inner Sound\” by Jon Weinel. I have also been invited to speak about live video performance at events such as Art in Flux, VJ Sympozium Kosice, and LPM.
In 2010, I debuted my inaugural audiovisual performance, Maya at the BFI Southbank. Since then, my AV performances have been showcased at numerous international festivals, including Waterman’s Digital Weekender, Art Futura, Kinetika Art Fair, Dronica, LPM editions in Rome, Amsterdam and Eindhoven, Lille VJ fest, Sophia Digital Arts, MUV Florence, Medea Electronique Athens and Generate Tubingen. For 2 years running I performed Eye of the Beholder with full-dome graphics at the Chromatouch Dome at Shambala festival.
I have produced light art and installation work, receiving the Rites of Passage award at Burning Man in 2011 for the collaborative piece “Reonion”. “Polychromy”, a collaboration with Aphra Shemza was exhibited at the Ars Electronica Festival, V&A Digital Design Weekend, and Event Two at the RCA. In 2021, my generative graphics piece “Geocentre”, was acquired by the Computer Arts Society (CAS) to be included in their permanent collection.
In recent years, I have actively engaged with educational institutions, contributing my expertise in developing various courses for Music Hackspace. Specifically, I have focused on the domains of VJing and generative graphics. Presently, I am in discussions with multiple universities to collaborate on designing modules for inclusion within their respective curricula.
