"New York City in the early 1970’s was a magical combination of music and art. The Andy Warhol scene at “The Factory”, combined with the likes of David Bowie and Iggy Pop hanging around legendary venues such as Max’s Kansas City, lead to an extraordinary creative time for both music and art.

This era has had a heavy influence on my art and is always felt within me when I travel to NYC. Having recently visited NYC once again, the inspiration of this era hit me like a ton of lead as I wandered around SOHO. Last time it was the Ramones that I heard coming through the gritty streets, this time it was the poetic voice of Mr. Lou Reed.

Although not as commercially popular as some of the other bands that came through this scene, Lou Reed and The Velvet Underground are cited as some of the most influential people/bands of the era. The Velvet Underground became a cult favourite and it was once said that everyone who purchased their first record went on to start a band of their own. In addition, Reed’s “Transformation” album, produced in part by David Bowie, tore through social boundaries and challenged what was deemed acceptable on radio and recordings at the time."
