"Anywhere But Here" is based off a painting I worked on back in the UK last year. I was going through a rough time and decided to revisit old themes in my work that I enjoyed creating. The idea behind the woman gazing out the window represents a positive outlook. To look past all the bullshit and go far beyond, chasing your dreams and live the life you want.
Lost for words is a short film that follows Amar Stewart’s life after beating Stage 4 Squamous Cell Carcinoma, a form of cancer that has changed his outlook on life. After discovering an aggressive tumor on his tongue, the only option for him was to have a total glossectomy, the full removal of his tongue amongst other invasive treatments. Lost for words explores his world of art and how it played an important role in his recovery and helped express his emotions when he didn’t have a voice.
I was recently commissioned to paint a portrait of Biggie for Angie Martinez, The Voice of New York.
We visit artist Amar Stewart at his London based studio to discuss his inspirations behind his work and find out more about the new collection for his upcoming show in New York.

The boys over at Graffik Gallery invited me over to their space to paint up their wall on Portobello Road, London. I decided to work on a piece that reflected my mood at the time. The piece titled "Socially Disturbed" focuses on a girl taking a photo of herself in the mirror whilst hiding her identity with the camera. It's an all too familiar sight in todays social networking websites we see today. I used a number of abstract shapes and flowing hair to pull the piece together.
