FAVOURITE DECADE AND WHY?
Crail Moansburg - The 60's, they represent a generation of freedom of expression in a very radical way, above all through music.. and don't we all love a good tune!
Magnus Gjoen - I'm more about centuries. Think 1400's Florence. Why? The cultural explosion that started there.
David De La Mano - The 80's, because it's my childhood when I spent some incredible years.. No phones, No rush.. just Football and Fun!

David De La Mano - El Hoyo - Limited Edition Screen Print
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BIGGEST ART WORK DISASTER?
Rosie Emerson - Ha ha- luckily not when I broke my world record for the latest Cyanotype photograph, that would have been a big disaster! I did a hand painted and gold leaf portrait commission at the beginning of the year, I had to re do 3 times before it I got it just right. I'm always having to re create work, because of the nature of my work, it often fails, but it is part of the process, I'm constantly learning, re doing, If I know exactly how it is going to look, I won't bother making it.
David De La Mano - I'm a big disaster and obviously have had many stumbles.. luckily disasters with paint are never too serious!
FAVOURITE HANG UP ARTIST?
Crail Moansburg - I'm in admiration of Ben Eine, i'd love to print life-size silkscreens with his typography
