.EPOD , London, 1977.

From a layered concrete tower in a greater London council estate, a young .EPOD soaked up 1980s TV Sci-Fi and Boom-Box Hi-Fi. The worlds of Ralph McQuarrie and Syd Mead drew his eye, while Melle Mel and Mantronix had his ear.

Studying art & design in the early 90s, he immersed himself in the London urban arts scene which at the time was going through something of a renaissance with genre defying works in graffiti and hip-hop emerging at pace. Inspired, he shook up a can and wrote .EPOD.

His professional skillset (draftsman, fashion designer and illustrator) and the inspirations of his youth manifest vividly in his paintings and murals. Sultry figures draped in elegant materials. Mirrored vessels in otherworldly landscapes. Cigarettes hanging from kiss me lips.

His forms ooze luxury, shimmering reflections of allure that while his own wink back at traditions within urban art and visions of the future.

B-Boys, Sly-Girls and Other-Worlds.
