I studied nihonga-style painting since I was young and a few years ago began experimenting with stiff oil painting brushes to make thick line portraits. With a background in designing magazines and record jacket covers, I enjoy creating images that are bold and graphic. I didn't have any particular plans for showcasing these paintings until a friend suggested making a large tabloid size free-paper and putting my artworks on the cover. I though it was fun idea to do something in printed media as so much of the work nowadays is shown digitally over the internet. The artwork in this exhibition is the process that led to the creation of the 'THE PAPER'
