How long does it take to recreate one scene?
To actually shoot them each image takes about 2 -3 hours. But I spend weeks getting everything ready before hand.

I have an obsession with detail so the most time consuming part is sourcing the costumes and props to ensure the images match as close to Banksy’s images as possible. Where things aren’t available I make them. The Machine gun the small boy is holding should be a Vietnam era M60 gun. I couldn’t get hold of one (for a reasonable price) so I modified a different replica gun, using garden sprinkler tube for the barrels and all kinds of electrical and plumbing fittings. Along with 60 Crayola Crayons!

How did people react to your idea?

I’m amazed how many people love it. Some people have bought a great number of prints, I’ve also sent some prints free to people who love it but can’t afford to buy them. I’ve had a lot of support from Central and South America. The French seem to hate me. Haha! What do the French know about art

Have you talked to Banksy about your project?

I’ve had no feedback from Banksy. I would love to do a book combining his street art and my images. I’ve already had some interest and looking for a publisher.
