The 34-year-old artist is well known for his photorealistic portraits of iconic faces, such as Conor McGregor, Jack Nicholson in The Shining, and Marlon Brando in The Godfather.

When asked about his technique, the self-taught artist said,

Most of it comes down to the eyes, they are a very important part, I do my best to make them a focal point and I always start with the eyes. Finding the suitable image can be difficult, some pictures don’t translate well to charcoal. It's all about the eyes, I love being able to capture emotion.
