"When he first showed me what he painted my immediate thought was to childhood, then I started
thinking about how I was always obsessed with Peter Pan as a kid, and how I kinda still think I am 21 in my head.
That’s why in this piece you will find scribbles about staying forever young, never growing up, and an air of raw playfulness.

Part of my Bathroom stall series:
In a bathroom stall you’ll find the most honest type of vandalism. A private public space, allowing for people to share their thoughts, feelings - their confessions. With their heart on their sleeve and their undies at their ankles, they add to a chorus of scribbles, immortalised on walls that can finally talk.
