Neckpiece  /  Abstract

My work is inspired by “retro-futurism”. I like to collect old things.  I find objects in vintage stores and street markets that satisfy me. I like to listen to my parents talk about their lives, and the life and environment of the past makes me curious. The technology and the factory, the ‘future’ as seen in the 1950s’ and 1960s’ was my inspiration.
Geometry and spray painting are the important elements of my work. I like to use simple shapes and lines to give a sense of futurism. Spray paints produce retro colours, and gives visual impact.
I hope that these pieces offer the wearer optimism for the future. They represent a positive notion that anything is possible.
