Where did the idea for a Retro Collection originate?
Sparked by a recent rediscovery of my old ghettoblaster, tv, camera, typewriter and cassette tapes, my new Retro Collection revisits my memories of these classic 1980s relics. Each piece in the collection takes one of these 80s symbols as their focal point, layering them with bold painted abstraction. Vibrant neon paint is dripped, poured and scraped over the metal reflecting a sense of the restlessness of the 1980s with its non-stop development of exciting new technologies
