I am based in Old Street: integrated in the heart of Central London, here I have grown to nurture my skills as a creative. An aspiring Illustrator and Graphic Designer, I have a lot of inspiration form strong vector artists' like James Oconnell and Mr.Bingo Over a year ago by this time, I had finished studying a games and animation course at college: where my passion for image making begun. Whilst undertaking this course, I quickly realised that my strengths aligned with the creation of graphics as supposed to the manipulation - if you like, of them. Cultivation is a word that comes to mind when describing my journey: being accepting of the diverse culture that is embodied within all of us. I also consider myself privileged enough to be able to showcase my perspective and 'cognitive vision' - as I like put it. Being a member of Tate Collective, I have grown to understand that there is no one way to achieve your goals and aspirations, realising that versatility and an open-mind can ultimately, broaden your horizons.
Tate Collectives aims to connect young people to art and culture at Tate/ Circuit Tate. Aimed at the 16- 25 age demographic, our goal is to celebrate young people’s art and ideas through free events, workshops, festivals and resources in the galleries and online.
For three special weeks, I had the privilege of shadowing the creative individuals at Hellicar & Lewis. Having a keen interest in illustration, I was able to contribute my skills on their latest commission for Cartoon Network’s ‘Adventure Time’ interactive game .
The Barbican is the biggest multi-cultural arts venue in Europe, and I have had the privilege of working with the Creative Learning division for a whole month. As an additonal role - I have been able to secure a connection post intern, with the digital marketing team to work on briefs for existing events at the Barbican.
