The bright, vivid painting represents a reimagined Mombasa, Kenya. Kenya is dominated by its capital city, Nairobi. In the study of cities it is possible for a political capital to become so dominant that it suppresses the growth of other centres with great economic potential. Nestled on a river delta at Kenya's coast Mombasa is one such place, arguable a centre that should be as large, if not larger than Nairobi yet is dwarfed by comparison. Why? Because as a capital city Nairobi neglects Kenya and aggrandises itself. This painting represents Mombasa's untapped potential and the voice of a city calling into the world to be freed of inequality, given an opportunity to bloom into a world city.

I am a scientist and artist based in Perth, Australia. My hand-painted, abstract cities represent the Urban Organism, a biological interpretation of urbanisation. My cities are imagined. If a real location is painted, it is an idealised vision of the future, a case study in urbanisation. The pieces featured here do not represent my full body of work. You're seeing archival artwork only.
