Dominic snapped the photograph of his dad's pants in 2013 and it was soon bought by the Saatchi Gallery, who has continued to support the artist through his career.

The artist also focuses on his hometown of Luton and explores the town's "identity crisis."

The town was voted number 1 in a nationwide poll of the worst towns in Britain in 2016.

Dominic added, "I've named it Lutopia - it just came to me one day. Luton has an identity crisis now. It doesn't know what it is.

"Lutopia was just a tongue in cheek name for a mystical bygone era."

The work measures 31 inches by 48 inches.
