“This artwork is a mix of all the things I love most – bright colours, bold shapes, mid-century advertising posters, a little bit of geometry, and of course, birds! I also wanted to create something bright and summery, a thing to make you smile while you’re sipping a cool drink after an afternoon at the beach.”
