Teatro Metaophora.

My summer holiday to Madeira, Portugal was a refreshing experience. On a trip to a festival in Camara De Lobos, we came down a busy street with dangling, bright decorations. As we walked along the street, we can across the jigsaw portraits of iconic figures and world leaders. These portraits were hand crafted out of metallic cans and tops from a small company based in Portugal called Teatro Metaophora. I was totally amazed at the time and effort that went into the works and re-composing art out of recycled materials.

I was born in Bedfordshire, England. I'm from a musical and artistic background, with creating music and writing songs from a young age. Still life drawing, carpentry and sculpture design is an area in Art that I have previously studied. I am B.A Sound Arts & Design student at London College of Communication in London, learning to become a Sound Practitioner in Sound Arts. I did a sound installation called, 'Bari (Home)' at Gallery 46, White Chapel, April 2019 about the cultural integration of the Tower Hamlet of London area. My influences have come form contextual art, artistes, music and sound, film and audio visual works. I'm intrigued by sound discovery and perception of the sounds we hear.
