The Tribeca New York Academy of Arts graduate tries to captivate people’s emotions through his tales of warfare, insecurity and trauma using junk materials including bicycle gears and rims to depict a lifesize helmeted warrior falling from a chariot pulled by a horse.
‘The fighter represents man. He is falling off the chariot because man is losing focus, losing track of what is right. The chariot, tilted to one side, represents society today, which is falling as a result of the problems—corruption, the quest for revenge and anger. The horse represents strength, and that sometimes we use our strength to do things that are not right, but also strength and the resiliency of man.’
