Artist Description

This work is the start of a series exploring the iconic status of popular/famous figures and giving them a pop-art twist with the help of the plastic Green Army Men. The plastic toy soldiers are synonymous with war games and boyhood fantasies and I have often used them to get socio-political messages across in my art. In these new works they are changing the narrative by spreading positivity and goodwill via the HUGS & KISSES (XOXO) symbol wherever they can.
