An Interview with British artist Milla Eastwood in her Studio in Brixton, London

The Brixton-based painter Milla Eastwood and I first met at the preview of her critically-acclaimed solo exhibition Drunk on Colour at The Dot Project in Chelsea. Although I have always favoured gestural, abstract paintings, I was yet to experience her energy and dynamic colour palette.

An Interview with Conceptual Artist Anna Fafaliou in her Dalston studio

The conceptual artist Anna Fafaliou and I first met after a talk I gave on ‘artists of the digital generation,’ but ironically we had actually shared an Instagram flirtation before that.
