ABOUT

Every bio forces you to pick a label. This is perhaps my greatest weakness - and strength - in a society that is adamant about stuffing you into a box: I don't fit it.  

ARTIST is one title I happily carry, out of pure, unfiltered passion. With a constant itch to create, ideas come flowing organically, and I work tirelessly to catch up to new concepts I came up with three weeks ago.

My main inspiration is music. When I come across an artist who resonates with me, it feels like bursting open a dam to an explosion of new ideas. Such has been my experience with especially The Beatles and Jack White, which also shows in my artwork. 

Other influences include 1960s culture, colours, and rock 'n' roll, as well as a plethora of art directors, illustrators, and fashion designers. I also owe a great deal to British comedian and artist Noel Fielding for making me pick up a pencil again back in 2014.


My list of inspirational sources is endless. But they have one thing in common, with each other and me: They have given up on fitting in to stand out.
