Although modelling for international brands such as Burberry, Diesel, DKNY and Dolce & Gabanna supported his studies at Goldsmiths, and Central St Martins, he's often found himself to be taken less seriously as an artist as a result.

An Interview with Internet Artist Petra Cortright in Los Angeles, California

LA-based internet artist Petra Cortright and I were introduced by the Swedish gallerist Carl Kostyal during her recent solo exhibition Orange Blossom Princess Fucking Buttercup at his London space.

A Review of (Juergen) Teller on (Robert) Mapplethorpe at Alison Jacques Gallery, London

The exhibition Teller on Mapplethorpe poignantly coincides with what would have been Mapplethorpe’s 70th birthday. It also ties in nicely with the touring exhibition The Perfect Medium, which opened at the J.Paul Getty Museum and LAMAC, as well as the HBO documentary Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures, released earlier this year.  Whether Mapplethorpe (b. 1946) was photographing flowers, nudes or celebrity portraits, the images that he took from the 1960's until his death in 1989 both followed and challenged classical aesthetic standards.

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. Just as her beautifully curated digital presence has attracted thousands of followers, her purist white installations and sculptures are continuing to make waves across the international art scene. Anna’s unique work explores the relationship between object, memory and space as well as the interplay

Highlights of the Frieze Masters Art Fair in Regent's Park, London

As always, Frieze Masters in Regent's Park, London was an elegant affair. Each stand was carefully curated and painted in delicate hues of charcoal, dove grey and white. Despite the regulated colour palettes of the walls, the fair couldn’t be accused of monotony given the juxtaposition of classical and contemporary works. With immersive installations like Gallery Hyundai’s Untitled (TV and Stone) and Helly Nahmad’s Mental Asylum...
