“Everyone is a separate entity, so I would never want to inflict strong personal opinions on my works. That’s why I never say what illustrations mean to me as they will mean something special to different people."
Fly has a great love for modern art and in particular pop art. He is drawn in by the strong contrasting colour palette in pop art works and has seen this influence his own colourful style of drawing. He is constantly observing the world and life around him, looking for those flashed of colour that so attract and stand out to him.
Fly is inspired by other artists who use colour in a bright, often abstracted ways such as Allen Jones, Keith Haring, Yuko Shimizu and Tom Wesslmann. He aims to create work in common with theirs that is bold in its approach and yet often edging on surreal in its presentation and content..
