I am Famous When Dead, creator of strange and intriguing artworks. I was born in the industrial, pottery city of Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, England. My artworks are heavily influenced by popular culture, past and present and I am constantly on the look out for fresh ideas. There are no obvious themes in my work although the reoccurring subjects of fragile celebrity, identity and social anxiety are noticeable in recent works.
