In an interview with The Guardian, the artist explained the fleeting nature of his art: “When I make something, in a field or street, it may vanish but it’s part of the history of those places.” He continues, “in the early days my work was about collapse and decay. Now some of the changes that occur are too beautiful to be described as simply decay.”
