His incredibly intricate illustrations explore the complexity of natural forms with a limited yet striking colour palette, each and every creation exhibiting the same ‘third eye’ distinctive logo.

Often focusing on the detail in the face, I try to encourage people to look a little closer, building layer upon layer from the centre of each canvas. From the ‘Dark Owl’ to the ‘Wise Lion’, each illustration has a minimum of 50 layers. My latest artwork ‘African Elephant #2’ is made up of 168 separate layers of vector patterns and half tones.”

“This collection is the first step in a much larger project. I’m working towards setting up a clothing line and hope this fluid set of artworks help define the style. The graphics will be screen-printed on to tees and other garments but for now selling them as strictly limited edition prints is a way to get the style out there. I’ve worked hard with my studio to get the most from the colours and the signed prints have been more popular than I could’ve imagined.”
