Being inspired by my sudden love of all things metallic, I decided to get some metallic fabric spray paint and transform my black leather jacket to silver. I think my obsession with shiny things began at Frieze fair London, when I saw Zhan Wang’s sculpture ‘artificial rock’. It just looked so immaculate. This lead me to create a set of metallic paintings, which in turn made me want to wear silver too.
Getting carried away, I did this to my denim jacket too.
It didn’t work quite as well on the denim, it left crackled effects which actually looked really good upon reflection – this crackled look seems to be ‘in’ at the moment too.
