Artist Statement

My art is a reflection of my unique journey, shaped by my experiences as a performer, risk-taker, and world traveler. My early years in Byron Bay, Australia, provided me with a deep connection to nature and a sense of freedom that I carry with me to this day.

As a young man, I discovered my talent for unusual skills and performance art, leading me to embark on a career that took me to over 40 countries and earned me 56 Guinness World Records. My performances were always designed to push the limits of what was considered possible and to inspire others to embrace their own sense of adventure and individuality.

During the pandemic, I turned my focus to painting, discovering that my physical art could be like my performance art, continuing to perform every time it is viewed. My paintings are characterized by bold brushstrokes, electrifying colours, and a fusion of figurative and abstract elements. I also use Augmented Reality technology to create immersive experiences that encourage introspection and self-discovery.

My work is an expression of my unique perspective, and I strive to create pieces that are visually stunning and thought-provoking. Through my art, I hope to inspire others to push their boundaries and challenge “the norm,” to see the world through a different lens and to find beauty in imperfection.
