Beast Syndicate

Working under the studio moniker Beast Syndicate (BEAST), my art is inspired by the ‘Do-It-Yourself’ ethos and associated aesthetics of skateboarding, punk and other counter-culture social and political movements. 

Appropriated, customized pop culture iconography is combined in a collage of metaphor and symbolism that explores the promises and contradictions within Western cultural messaging.

Through graphic emulation and/or the actual production process, I incorporate the distressed textures of street art and print-making as an allegory for the decay of the American dream. Born and raised in the UK, but living almost half my life in the USA, I’ve experienced the American experiment from a unique perspective that continues to inform my work.
