From Jesus to Yeezus
An exploration on the parallels between conventional worship and fanatical behaviours surrounding celebrity worship, bringing the definition of religion into question. I found Kanye West (aka Yeezus) to be an excellent case study as, despite his faith in Christianity, his egotistic persona and god complex paints a fascinating picture of the modern person’s struggle between submission and empowerment. In congruence with the time-honoured vocabulary of Christian art, the artwork is filled with symbolism and iconography which references from the life of Yeezus. This is the mythology of Yeezianity and the human race.

All The People, So Many People is an ongoing visual mixtape which consists of visualised song suggestions from close friends who have been asked the question "Pick a song that summarises our friendship."

Artwork for Industria 2019
I was invited by the organisers of Industria (Индустрия), a pioneering design and art festival based in Izhevsk, Russia, to contribute an artwork that pays homage to the city's industrial roots. I sought to visualise the correlation between their industrial heritage and the comforts it allowed its residents by making a connection between their factories and love for sauna.
