GTA TRU LIFE
November 22, 2013
Invited by Elena Gilbert
In 2011 I took a bike ride around San Andreas, the virtual city from the computer game Grand Theft Auto. It's ironic since after breaking my arms cycling I tend not to cycle in reality.
I found a camera whilst cycling and started taking photographs. The weather and colours change quickly and there's some pretty decent sunsets.
I carried on snapping the scenery until I was killed.
Early this year I started paintings from those pictures I took and now I am also working from contributions from other game players with cameras.
