London-born Stone began his career studying at Camberwell College of Arts where he was part of a movement in art squatting in South London as well as being part of the !WOWOW! collective which put together exhibitions in unused commercial properties.

Stone's portfolio includes paintings, photography, sculpture, performance art, curating and writing.

The artist focuses on representing notions of intimacy and the human experience through images which make abstractions of the body. His subjects performative body language and rawness perfectly marries with FKA twigs' performances, in which she features contemporary dance, art and even contortionist performers.
