David Kovats used to work in valuations at Sothebys, he is now an independent an art advisor. He got in touch with me through Instagram and was interested in talking about the “on Lux Bag” artworks I was doing. David also has a vlog and wanted to feature my artwork in one of his videos so he flew over from Budapest to film me working on my new series and see my current exhibition here in London.
The video is really well edited I think. Check it out below:
Another for the Vintage Vogue series.
I worked from a photo taken by Louise Dahl-Wolfe, one of the first professional female photographers, taken in 1953 in Tunisia.

The link between desire and suffering is one of the main tenets in Buddhism.
So we should react more in horror to these luxury brands and their marketing than with covetous lusting.

Really enjoyed doing this one (inspired by a photo by Helmut Newton), I drew the car using graphic outlines (see below left image) and her in normal photorealistic style so as to differentiate between the two slightly. Also just loving the retro summer vibes. Frame came out well too
“Summer of 83″
Ballpoint pen, spray paint, & marker on card.
Very happy with this new medium sized drawing I’ve just completed. It was an exercise in tonal gradients and capturing contrast. I used ballpoint pen for her body, paint pen for her swimsuit and shades, spray paint for the skylike background and pencil for the folded paper sheet she’s shielding herself from the sun with.
Channeling some of the summer vibes I’m diggin’ at the moment in London.
This is very much in line with the Vintage Vogue style artworks I’m kind of known for and often return to.
