Then & Now

9 April 2011

Graphic novels, pulp literature, cinematic narratives, urban decay, and the pervasive influence of pop culture constitute enduring pillars that shape and animate my artistic endeavours. Within this rich tapestry of influences, the genesis of “Then & Now” finds its origins, where the contemplation of urban decay converges with the iconic figures of contemporary stardom. The juxtaposition of youthful “Then” incarnations, reminiscent in scale to the grandeur of traditional movie posters, alongside the introspective visages of “Now,” proportioned akin to classical actor’s headshots, evokes a profound narrative.

Embrace the essence of “Then & Now,” a testament to the fluid interplay between nostalgia and modernity, as it unfolds before you.
