SUMMER OR WINTER?

FAVOURITE DECADE AND WHY?
Lauren Baker - Now. I live in the present!
Joe Webb - 1950's obviously... check my artwork out
Delphine Lebourgeois - 1980s - The decade of my childhood. I grew up loving fluorescent leg warmers, embarrassing hairstyles, shoulder pads and pac-man. It shapes an individual!
TOP SUMMER HANG OUT IN LONDON?

Delphine Lebourgeois - Tooting Lido
David De La Mano - El Hoyo
WHICH EXHIBITIONS ARE ON YOUR TO DO LIST?
Dave White - This one of course! And Phillip Guston at Timothy Taylor Gallery
Lauren Baker - I've still not seen Alexander Mcqueen at the V&A, so that is top of my list
IF YOU COULD COLLABORATE WITH ANY ARTIST WHO WOULD IT BE?
Mark Powell - Basquiat, everyday!
Dave White - I guess it would have to be someone whose work is the total polar opposite in both style and application, Takashi Murakami would be fun.
Takashi Murakami - Homage To Mono Pink 1960
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BIGGEST ARTWORK DISASTER?
Oddly Head - I once built a 5m high brain out of polystyrene for an ad campaign. It fell apart during its journey on the back of a flatbed truck from Stoke Newington to Birmingham. I’d been up for over 40 hours finishing it off in the studio and then had to work another 20 hours repairing it in the middle of Birmingham town centre. It looked liked dogs shit and I only got half my fee.
Mark Powell - I painted a giant portrait of Jesus, 40 ft high, on the side of a building in America but he turned out to look like Osama bin laden with a crown of thorns. I loved it.
FAVOURITE HANG-UP ARTIST?
Lauren Baker - Magnus Gjoen
Joe Webb - Mark Powell and Rosie Emerson
Delphine Lebourgeouis - Charming Baker
Dave White - Gold Leaf Stag
