This is my artist page - Spectacular spectacle
I deal in state's of mind, not discipline.
I see many beautiful things, an eternity of beauty.
- attaining the maximum of intensity with the minimum of means.
I stand for the antithesis of professionalism and craftsmanship - but I do deliver.
Regard my projects like epileptic fits and plastic bags for clouds.
I was born in Derby in the UK in 1983. I have 3 brothers and 2 sisters. Our family was raised in an Italian/ Jamaican culture due to the are we lived in.
My family moved to Italy in 1989 after I burnt our house down. Me and my family narrowly escaped with our lives; we had to jump out of the top floor window and were caught below by the neighbors. All that survived was a photo of my dead grandfather.
I fell in love with cinema when I saw the films of Paolo Villaggio - Fantazzi, Roberto Rossellini, Federico Fellini, Pasolini and Sergio Leone.
I moved to America in 1995 learnt guitar, played with a band called Ochmonekes. Got deported from America in 2006 for being British, I was a good citizen too.
When I was in the UK I saw Jonathan Caouette Tarnation and was blown away. It was like taking ecstasy, acid, death and freedom in one go - I was high for a very long time after watching that movie'
I made my feature film Black Biscuit because I realized that film and art schools are a cancer, they eat away your creativity and identity leaving you a pale imitation of your teacher. Its that bad.
The cast of Black Biscuit was made up of Homeless people, sex workers, the abused, addicts (Mephedrone). I raised the funds by life modeling, and going from door to door asking people to donate a 1gbp. Most of the filming was done using borrowed and stolen cameras, along with extensive use of mobile phones and childrens cameras. 'there was no script, I didnt even tell anyone what the story was. I told people to be themselves and to make me sick and inspired.
'its beautiful to see things smash into place, which is what my film making does. I want the audience to feel as if they've been thrown down a garbage shoot into a dumpster - No Budget Film making is a part of the Pink8 manifesto.
My photography work includes Six Pretties and Vomit.
Now NSC - New Suburban Crackers rule the streets.
