Artists on your radar, shout them out!
On permanent rotation Mark Rothko, David Bowie, Francis Bacon, Diane Arbus and Jackson Pollock.
Which is your number one location - and what's it best for?
My home which is best for work and play and not necessarily in that order.
'Getting creative', what's it all about?
Being true to yourself.
Your Life, Right Now - what's the soundtrack?
David Bowie's 'Teenage Wildlife' and pretty much anything on Scary Monsters. For reasons I don’t understand, I never got into this album, but just recently - click, and it feels like I’ve discovered a brand new Bowie record and I love it!
What is your idea of a jolly good time?
Feeling loved and great food.
What happened the last time you were a complete disgrace?
I was at one of the very early Boom Festivals in Portugal. In those days there were only about 2 or 3 thousand people there, so it was intimate enough to make eye contact with the yogi sitting on the speaker stack. One night, we took far too much acid and I thought I was sitting on the edge of a multi story building watching elephants dance in the forest. Needless to say I have never done acid again and this might explain my fear of heights but I’m clean living these days. Sobriety is so much more interesting.
