WORK N°10: I MADE ARTWORK FOR JORDY AND JO IS IN IT (2018)

February 16, 2018 Drawings

I had met Jordy and Jo through Jerry and they knew I had done something with Miles at MTV (page 17). So I went and did artwork for Jordy’s new song that is coming out on Spotify and Apple Music hopefully this February. The song’s called ‘Recipe’. Jo is sitting there, that’s a corner of his room. I wanted to work ‘with’ them, musicians. I have always been fascinated by the collaborative nature of music, sometimes being quite jealous ofRead More

Work n° 9: I did nails at the Tate (2018)

January 23, 2018 Actions

I realised it takes a lot of courage to sit down with me, in that setting. On the 21st of January 2018 I spent 6 hours giving visitors of the Tate free manicures and massages. Myself and Junda Dietze (my friend and set designer) built a set modeled after South East Asian nailsalons. Visitors would invite themselves to sit down with me and pick a treatment. Often, it felt like it wouldn’t matter what they would go, it felt likeRead More

Work n° 8: I led a music mob through my school

January 12, 2018 Actions, music

At 2PM on 11th of January 2018 my friends and I marched around the school, singing and dancing to popular mostly UK rap tunes. We felt alive, engaged, with eachother, we were a force so to speak. Sofiane, one of my friends, came up to me after the action and said he felt like he was truly himself. To me, I was commenting on claiming space for ourselves to be ourselves. It was about making your own rules, despite howRead More

WORK N° 6: i sneaked miles into mtv (2017)

January 1, 2018 music

  In November 2018 I was selected to partake in a youth program by MTV. Four of us had to each paint a large scale painting for MTV Music Week in the light of the upcoming EMA’s. The overarching theme for all painters was London and Music. I chose to portray my friend Miles, as I thought he was the embodiment of music in London for me. He is raw, talented, lives for music and tragically is not well known.Read More
