INSA is a hugely influential and respected UK graffiti artist. As well as his artwork featuring on the streets, his artwork has also been commissioned by galleries such as Tate Britain. He is probably best known for his INSA Heels series of art prints, which have featured in signature collections for major brands such as Kangol and Kid Robot - and are produced through his own company 'INSA Heels'. The obsessions that most interest him are the ones people have with graffiti, tennis shoes, popular street culture, the female as a sex object and bright, shiny cars. He represents these obsessions as fetishes in his art. INSA claims that his most important influence as an artist, is the simple fact that he is miserable when not creating art. He says that he is also influenced by fellow artists including; Jeff Koons and the surrealist German artist and photographer Hans Bellmer.
