I am deeply inspired by Cubism, one of the most revolutionary art movements of the 20th century. Cubism began with Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque in the early 1900, with other artists following and adopting similar styles.

Some of my favourite artists from the 20th century – from Cubism, Rayonism, Futurism, Vorticism and Savageists are: Franz Marc, August Macke, Juan Gris, Fernand Leger, Jean Metzinger, Gino Severini, and Robert Delaunay.

You will see their influence in all my work.

The development of these schools continues today with artists such as Mansur Rahi (my teacher and mentor) who have taken cubism, rayonism and futurism into the 21st century.
