Conceptually I want to explore the idea of Moral Relativism and how it applies to teenagers, without fully established minds. Working in the genre of Portraiture and figurative; I explored what is wrong and right as deemed by society. Moral Relativism is the theory that morality, or standards of right and wrong, is culturally based and therefore become a matter of individual choice. My work investigates Moral Nihilism, Moral Absolutism and Moral Universalism exploring my personal views, beliefs and past experiences and my complex feelings.

My influences and subject matter are drawn from the streets and explored in an abstract manner, as a young skater just coming back from New York I’m very aware of the impact of artists such as Basquiat and Andy Warhol and their influence on popular culture.
