Among his influences are: Richard Hell, Genesis P-Orridge, Lady GaGa, Marcel Duchamp, Jeremy Deller, Ray Johnson, David Robilliard, Bas Jan Ader, Chris Burden, Angus Fairhurst, William Pope. L, Andy Warhol, Terri Hooley, Linder Sterling, William Burroughs, Ian Curtis, David Bowie, David Lynch, Leigh Bowery, George Lucas and Daniel Johnston.
