'Research is highly important to my process, I love applying new knowledge or new insight into my pieces. My mission as an artist is to disturb the comfort and comfort the disturbed. I gather my knowledge from reading history, science and biography books. I also love analysing music from all eras and genre, such as Jazz, Blues, Lo-fi and Hip Hop. I also feel that I am a natural activist, therefore it is seemingly unavoidable that I speak about global and societal issues through my art. As an artist, I'd like to think my pieces will continue to grow after my existence. It is important to me that my life's work will inspire and help those in the present and the future.'
