Where are you from?
Catford, South East London

What do you do?
I am an artist, who works in the mediums of clothes, painting and music. Basically anything I can get my hands on.

Where's your favourite place?
My bedroom, where I make all of my pieces. It's a different world, a factory.

Our current issue is The Activist Issue, what would you stand up for?
I would stand up for all the talented kids getting ignored. We're coming for your neck.

Who do you look to for inspiration when it comes to standing up for what you believe in?
Skepta and Maison Martin Margiela, both pushing the boundaries of their art.

If you could choose anyone in the world to be prime minister, who would you choose and why?
I'd choose Karl Lagerfeld, 'cos that man is a machine and he wouldn't take any shit.

What's the best thing about being young in 2015?
Harnessing the full power of the internet and bringing that to the real world.
