Head designs and Kat Sinclair

London born Philip started using his head as a canvas for creativity back in 2006 when he began to go bald. He did not want to conform to shaving his head like everyone else so started using it as an art form to express. Philip’s head designs are now becoming iconic within London’s fashion and art scenes where people strive to be original. As a tastemaker he is now gaining recognition abroad including Japan and China, and is leading the way to becoming one of the most original expressions of creativity in the 21st century.

Philip teams up with professional body painter Kat Sinclair, continuously creating a wealth of designs that have ranged from his 1000-Swarovski crystal head piece to homages of such artists as Roy Lichtenstein and Hokusai painted on his head. Philip caught the attention of Mehron, the largest body paint suppliers in America and is now sponsored by them.

Philip is cultural entrepreneur, co-founding the collective Lazy Gramophone, a couture arts and design label that supports developing artists by running a publishing label, gallery and events. He is also a partner in Art Below, an organisation that strives to create opportunities for emerging and established artists and designers to showcase their work in public spaces, both at home and abroad.
