I was pleasantly surprised to find that my friend spotted a video on YouTube where an A-Level photography class had used my “GLITCH” editorial as an artist of reference for a unit of work based on distortion.
George Robinson-White, teacher of Art & Photography at TAHS introduced the students to my work and me as a contemporary artist, looking at my unique take on photographic portraiture.
The students analysed my work and were asked to create their own interpretation of my glitch portraits as well as using me as a contemporary artist reference for their A-Level essays.
I’m flattered to know that my work is being shown to a new generation of potential photographers and artists. I didn’t expect my glitch series to be something students would study as part of an A-Level project or even to be referring to me as an artist.
I am very excited to announce that the very talented illustrator, Trystan Matthey will be creating a series of weird and whimsical creatures based on my London Collections Men attire for this upcoming AW15 season.
Five unique drawings will be created, featuring my outfits for each day of LCM. I think this lighthearted look on fashion and street style will be a fun project for both as I won’t know what creatures are created until they are sent to me each day. I look forward to seeing what bizarre monsters will emerge and what attire they will be sporting (as I still don’t know what I will be wearing yet).
Here is a little teaser of what you can expect to see:
