You have no idea how long it took me to get this shot; I started going crazy. Self portraits can be extremely difficult. You'd laugh pretty hard if you could see behind the scenes of this! But it was worth it in the end. This image ties together several references:

• ART comes in many forms. In this picture you can see my skin, a hologram canvas, a photographic canvas, a film poster and an art print.

• The drapes of different fabric was my attempt to mimic the flowing fabric within the Tamara de Lempicka painting.

• The hologram canvas features a woman with a tattooed back.

• SCALA AL PARADISO is the translated title of my all-time favourite film. In the UK it's known as 'A Matter of Life and Death' but it often referred to as 'Stairway to Heaven'. My back and shoulder tattoos are Conductor 71 character references from this film.

• .....and yes, that is my bedroom.
