Handmade Papercut of a moth, 15 cm x 10 cm
The charity Campaign Against Living Miserable (CALM) commissioned me to create a portrait of Professor Green for the cover of their 18th Issue of CALMzine, a free magazine distributed all over UK. I created this piece cutting every single piece of his face as a paper and then assembling all of them by hand. The final piece was photographed and used as the cover. You can read the entire issue on CALMzone website

I was approached by Emergency Exit Arts, a community-focused arts group, to participate in a project alongside several other artists. Our mission was to create and deliver ideas for the Newham Carnival 2017. We spent a couple of days designing the main features and preparing the materials we would need to deliver the workshops. Having developed our ideas, throughout June we visited primary schools across the borough to help children bring alive our designs for the Carnival. We worked in different groups with specific designs relating to Rio, New Orleans, Venice, and Trinidad & Tobago. Each team had different colours, schemes and themes. The children we met with were from a range of backgrounds, each bringing different ideas to the workshops. It was brilliant to see the range of cultural references in the designs.
This project gave me great experience of working at scale, using a range of different materials, such as plastic, card and paper mache. I helped with one of the floats working on a crown for a massive king’s head. I also developed my ability to work with a diverse group of young people and inspire them to explore their creativity.
