Music and Arts

Contact me - Puresavageuk@gmail.com

 

Hello, I am happy you have found me. I am a conceptual artist based in England. I live between my home town of Birmingham and the city of London.

 

I hope that you will experience my creativity as something special and memorable, that you can relate to your own life stories. The music, words and film are created from personal perspectives to consider wider ideas. I portray alternative worlds that I observe within this world and deliver each piece in a series, season or snapshot.

If you are someone who is intrigued by multi layered view points, independent thought and fun with a twist. My output will be for you.

There are many ways you can experience what I make. Perhaps songs reach you the most. You can collect my music from the selection of CD's and Vinyl in the online shop. Along with books, collectable posters and gifts from all collections.

 

Perhaps you would like to meet me and attend a live performance, reading or mixed media exhibition. I create at least one exhibition or performance a year. Just keep popping back to this website for details. I will always have something new for you to see here.

 

My journey into music and arts began when I found myself needing to understand the feeling of separation I felt as a young child. I taught myself to play the guitar aged nine and became hooked on marrying the sound with words. When there wasn't enough room in songs. I began to write poetry pamphlets and novelettes. I also seek out special images to heighten the sensory feeling. This is where the film and narrative photography begins.

By natural chance, I have a heightened sense of curiosity and a love of adventure. I am fascinated by the human need for the extraordinary and uncovering the true meaning of the ordinary. My creativity serves the sensual and surreal, along with the complex ideals of mystery.

 

My hobbies include simple things like riding my bike, walking, finding unique collectables and as I don't eat animals, studying natural health and compassionate lifestyles.
