After a 12-year career as an advertising photographer he started his own art business 6 years ago. He initially trained as a graphic designer before taking an MA in fine art in Florence in his mid-20s. ”Studying fine arts opened my eyes to the possibility of creating abstract art via the camera. What I am doing today is a result of that experience”. Banks creates his pictures by taking a photograph on film. With some images, he will go on to enhance or manipulate them using computer software.
