I'm an ancient Asian art buff. An old man still looking towards the rising Sun. In my pieces I am reaching back to go forwards; my only wish: to indulge fully in the process of re-interpreting and remixing art...

I am deeply inspired by the masters of Japanese Ukiyo-e painting, and aim with my pieces to convey a deeply evocative and somewhat reminiscent picture of a past both foreign and beautiful, where notions of time and enjoyment had very different connotations. For that I use both physical and digital mediums to reinterpret ancient pieces from old Japanese Masters of the art-form, some very well known and others anonymous and underground.

Re-interpretating ancient art provides me with a freedom of expression that is not limited by genre or nomenclature, while remixing gives me a sense of connection to the past and the satisfaction of creation something new. The bulk of my work consists of investigating public domain ukiyo-e and then planning the piece before moving on to digital collage, drawing and painting on the final assemblage. Lastly I do post-treatment to bring out certain tones, and create a vintage mood.

Seeing that my works are in essence derivative they are both loved and hated to equal proportions. Purists criticise and denounce my building on pre-existing pieces, more moderate and perhaps experimental folk identify with my perspective, and many art-lovers admire the resulting images. I make no claims and make no excuses. My hat goes off to those that appreciate what I do, and my heart to those that purchase one of my pieces.
