How did you go from Graffiti to sculpture? Was this something you were always interested in?

I have been involved in the local graffiti and street art scene for the last 17-18 years since I was in my early teens. Back then there was a strong scene which has since quietened down somewhat. I created stencil art for 17 years and did a bit of freehand work also. 7 years ago I opened an art gallery which I ran for 4 years while doing my stencil work on the side. I ran it for 4 years until I closed it 3 years ago. For a few months I still created the stencil work until I was sick of it and wanted to move in a completely new direction. I experimented with a few 3d style stencils until I thought of the idea of making a 3d building and putting stencils onto it. From there the miniature side took over and I have not looked back since.
