'A Short History of Milan' began in November 2018 for a special project featured at the Affordable Art Fair Milan 2019. There is a reoccurring linear, structural theme throughout the series, capturing the Milanese use of materials in design such as glass, metal, wood and stone. I have a strong connection to Northern Italy from printing my books in Verona, and I have visited Milan to exhibit many times. The work here is a series I have been sketching ideas for for a while, and I am excited to release my first Italian body of work, capturing the spirit of Milan. It sits alongside my Hong Kong, Vietnam and New York series, which depict the colour, fabric and structure of cities with distinct style.
