“In his new body of work he will present a series of five chairs, using them as narrators to create a captivating collective of modern art that mimics characters from his child. More specifically the exhibition focuses on the well know parable “Despite how long the neck of the giraffe is, it can’t see the future’ creating a thought provoking installation that gives the audience an insight into the artists journey to adulthood.”
