Hand painted set design artwork for the official music video for Jehnny Beth's I'm The Man single from the the official Peaky Blinders soundtrack. Collaborating with art director Alexa Hartle and Peaky Blinders writer/director Anthony Byrne, I wanted to capture the raw intensity of the track and respond to Jehnny's words regarding the visual language:

"‘I’m the Man’ is an attempted study on humankind, what we define as evil and the inner conflict of morality, because it is much easier to label the people who are clearly tormented by obsessions as monsters than to discern the universal human background that is visible behind them. However, this song has not even a remote connection with a sociological study, collective psychology, or present politics. It is a poetic work first and foremost. Its aim is to make you feel, not think.”

The work was created on location using spray paint and acrylic paint.
