My Top Twenty Five Intellectual Heroes

This series of drawings was made into an original set of drawing in an artist  book and slide show that features my top twenty five intellectual heroes from the fields of art, music, novels and philosophy. They include Andy  Warhol, Joseph Beuys, Nick Cave, JD Salinger, Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, Patrick White, Jackson Pollock, Haruki Murakami, John Lennon, Yoshitomo Nara, Kurt Cobain, Marcel Duchamp, Friedrich Nietzsche, Marcel Proust, John Waters, Milan Kundera, Gaston Bachelard, Herman Hesse, Allen Ginsberg, Saint Francis of Assisi, Khalil Gibran, Yoko Ono, Walt Whitman and the Dalai Lama.

These intellectual giants have inspired my artwork and particularly drawing over the past twenty years. 

The book of drawings was donated to John Kaldor to be kept in his contemporary art collection.
