“I grew up with a mouse in my hand ‘paint­ing’ th­ese strange, pix­e­lated im­ages. I scare my­self some­times when I look back at them,” the artist ad­mits. Even­tu­ally, he stum­bled upon speed­paint­ing videos, and was im­me­di­ately en­am­oured with them, prompt­ing him to pick up his first tablet.

“It wasn’t un­til a few years ago, though, that I gave my­self to the craft,” he says. “Ever since, I’ve been paint­ing, fol­low­ing other artists, ex­per­i­ment­ing with dif­fer­ent styles and tech­niques, and fall­ing in love with art all over again.”
