“A Magnificent Waste Of Time ( Come To Bed )”

Edition 1 of 1
internet research : A widely
accepted and quoted statistic (lots of
self help blogs and search engine
question results) is that the average
modern human will spend 90,000+
hours working in their lifetime or 1/3 of
their adult existence. This is based on
the 8 hour work day, 5 day work week.
It seems another generally stated
and accepted statistic (some
randoms talking on message boards)
is that the average working artist
tends to pull 10 hr + days and a 6-7
day work week. digital painting |

I create cyberpunk worlds from my photos.

Shinjuku Station

Edition 1 of 1
When I arrived in Shinjuku, I was
blasted with neon lights and giant
screens. With the bright light and
chaotic sound, my senses are
overwhelmed. But, once I get used to
it, I start to enjoy it, even crave it. I
took this photo in Tokyo in 2009.
Hyperreality effects added in 2022

This is Justus, the cover-boy from

“Álfheimur”

Edition 1 of 1
I am not I and I am not you. Laughter
sounds different when my lips are
braced shut. The concept of “I” stuck
in my throat while I wash in your peel.
Surrounded. Stranger beneath
stranger ceilings. Mourning past as
comfort. Remembering then wasn’t
safe either. Remembering memory as
a synonym for home. Detached,
clenched, hovering within the shell of
my forehead – spiralling into colours –
making sense of it all. Oil on canvas |

The Original Files

Edition 1 of 1
My first digitally hand drawn frame by 
frame animation. File: mp4 Length: 19 sec 
Size: 2000 x 2000 px Year: 2021. Set in the 
far future, a wolf-mutant is on the quest for a 
disc containing the original PSD files of
 a digital artwork made thousands of years 
ago. This animation is based on an illustration
 from my retro futuristic series “Style Files
 – the quest for the original disc” made in 2015.
It’s about the authenticity of digital artworks
 and the romantic pleasure of imagining that
 your work will be an important piece of
 history when we’re all gone. When I first came
 up with this story I thought that the most
 authentic way to make and store a digital
 artwork piece would be (in my case) to
 put the original PSD files in a hand signed CD.
Now since the problem of authenticity for
 digital art is solved with the blockchain i 
think it’s very suitable to make this animation
 my first NFT on Super Rare. The collector of 
this NFT will also receive a hand signed CD
 containing the original files.


Photographer & Director, based between London & Los Angeles. His work focuses on creating a hyperreal universe that challenges identity and sexuality; and has worked with clients & Publications such as K-Swiss, NME, Rolling Stone, i-D, Vogue, ITP Media Group & more.

“V’JIXUS”

Edition 1 of 1
An image… or perhaps a cursed image? 
V’JIXUS, Also known as ‘The Trickster’. 
Once summoned, this demon is found 
living in the shadowy depths of ‘Death 
Valley’. With nails as sharp as obsidian 
glass, and teeth made of pure gold… 
I wouldn’t want to become this creatures prey.
A piece from this series featuring Noel 
Garcia, was featured in the #132 THE 
(PARA)NORMAL ISSUE of Glamcult Magazine –
– this image itself is one of my all time 
favorite pieces i’ve created. This work 
really shows the initial universe i’ve 
began to create. Dimensions: 3840 × 5760px.


Turning makeup into fine art. Recently featured on the cover of Harper’s Bazaa, in NY Times, Numéro Magazine, Tush Magazine, Paper Magazine, Dazed Beauty and Them.

“Absolute Divinity”

Edition 1 of 1
Standing at the foot of a canyon I am transformed 
into my final form. I am a celestial, divine being 
commanding the attention of the universe. As a 
makeup artist I aspire to not compliment but to
 completely transform. Over the course of eight
 hours I altered my hair, face and skin by hand to
 become one with the ephemeral beauty of a
 desert sunset. The colors of my makeup were 
individually created to complement this fleeting
 moment and were applied by hand. Even though
 the makeup eventually washed off my body and
 the sun swiftly tucked away, this moment is now
 immortalized. In this work I am glorious, I am 
divine. Captured by Nathan Sweet on a Canon 
SureShot 35mm

“Exsanguinate”

Edition 1 of 1
April 8th, 2019, I stood on The World Photographic 
Cup podium in Draamen, Norway, next to legend 
photographers, and had a Bronze Medal placed around
 my neck for this image, Exsanguinate. It was a high
 that I wasn’t capable of feeling; 2 days before, I was
 told my mother had cancer. That trip was life changing,
 both professionally and personally, and this image
 represents that line in the sand, the before and the
 after, a beginning and an end. Exsanguinate: Latin, drain
 of blood. Inspired and modeled after the famous
 master painting by William-Adolphe Bouguereau,
 Dante and Virgil, this photographic artwork was
 created using only one model, photographed in 21
 different positions, and meticulously pieced together
 in Photoshop.

 of the World’. A pilgrimage town regarded as
 one of the holiest places for Hindus, visited by
 Hindu sages and saints since ancient times to
 meditate in search of higher knowledge. Adorned
 by India’s holiest river Ganga (Ganges), the city is 
visited by Hindus from all around the world to 
worship this sacred river, cleanse their sins by 
bathing in its waters, and pay homage
