His artistic interest lies mainly in the human figure, and he has worked with performers from backgrounds in dance, theatre and mime. He has exhibited in the Jerwood Drawing Prize (2015) and participated in art events at the Zabludowicz Collection, Crypt Gallery and the London Contemporary Dance School.
