Painter and sculp­tor well-known for his street in­stal­la­tions like the crocodile in the pot­hole on a city road that drew world­wide at­ten­tion.

FREE­DOM IS The abil­ity to be truth­ful and as artists, in­voke deep con­ver­sa­tion around things that hap­pen around us. It is the lib­erty to hold up a mir­ror to our so­ci­ety and raise aware­ness about ur­gent is­sues and ar­gue for change. It is also the need to not have to fake any­thing we do as artists.

IF I HAD COM­PLETE FREE­DOM

I would love to cre­ate art re­lated to one com­mu­nity in an­other com­mu­nity's place of wor­ship and vice versa. This is to in­spire peo­ple of all be­liefs and faiths to come to­gether un­der one roof and be able to cre­ate peace and har­mony through art.
