  • 14. Shannon Kurlander

    Shannon Kurlander is a writer, actor and creates performances which incorporate theatrical elements and mixed media. She recently premiered her latest show The Project at Jack Studio Theatre in Brockley, South London. The second play of hers to take on a format of storytelling which positions Shannon as both writer and performer, The Project follows Shannon's 2022 piece Visiting Hours. Recently Anthony and Shannon met to discuss her unique process, catch up on the ins and outs of raising a dog called Pistachio, and trade notes on film and TV produced in the style of social realism. Both find themselves reminiscing about people they've encountered within creative lives, maintaining creative practices along with professional work and ponder the imminent return of Indie Sleaze, a style which for better or for worse, both may have had a hand in creating in its first inception.More about ShannonIG: @greatesthits_productions@ShannonKurlanderThe Project at Jack Studio TheatreSupport Into the Paint on PatreonInto the Paint LinktreeIG: @intothepaint_podcastTheme Music by Harry Bix

  • 11. Alix Lambert

    Alix Lambert's work spans multiple media and disciplines. From documentary filmmaking to boxing, Alix has spent the majority of her career trying to understand strange and beautiful aspects of human behaviour. Anthony first encountered her work while flipping through the 1993 Venice Biennale catalogue; feeling a strange sense of affinity for the black & white image of Alix punching a speed-bag in a wedding dress, Anthony and Alix connected to try to revive her 1993 film 'No Holes Barred.' In the early stages of conducting podcasts for this interview Anthony and Alix caught up online to talk about her latest directorial work with the film 'The Woods Are Real' (2023) and her process of coming to appreciate working through film as a medium.Follow Alix on instagram at @lixilambWatch The Woods Are Real on all major streaming platforms 12 March 2024Check out Alix's books at Percival PressDonate to Humanitet's Emergency Gaza AppealTheme music by Harry Bix
  • 10. Fabio Coverini

    Into The Paint's 10th episode! Back in October 2023, Anthony and Fabio chewed the fat for a few hours. Together they thought through Fabio's artistic trajectory from his origins in working in illustration, fashion design and painting to gigging non-stop as a DJ. Together they unpack the ethos surrounding several subcultures including techno and Northern Soul, reminisce about the glory days of DIY venues and talk about Fabio's current cross-disciplinary practices from his work with Soho Yacht Club and Frank Radio. Anthony and Fabio ponder whether Northern Soul is indeed the reverse British Invasion, if podcasting is actually just cricket, if their collaborative zine 'Baby Grace' is really smart or really dumb, and if Into the Paint should record exclusively from different IKEA's throughout the UK.Visit Fabio on Instagram@fcoverini@frankradiobroadcastCheck out Frank Radio Broadcast on SoundcloudDonate to Humanitet's Palestine Emergency AppealTheme music by Harry Bix
  • 9. Erin Green

    Back in November, Into the Paint conducted a house-call in North London with a then-pregnant Erin Green. Erin is a makeup artist by trade and an artist through-and-through. Aside from Erin's professional work for major brands and magazines, she has always maintained personal projects on the side - these form of self expression help Erin to equalise and balance out some of her more commercial work. She paints on skin, stages photographs, works through zines, and is working towards an ambitions book project. Erin's work generally involves makeup conceptually, however not necessarily always on the face. In this episode Erin and Anthony talk pregnancy and the challenges that independent creatives face when starting a family. They also cover topics from how Erin got started in the fashion photo scene, the pleasures of mulching and the soaring cost of NYC bagels.Check out Erin's work on her website and on instagram: music by Harry BixDonate to Humanitet's Palestine Emergency Appeal here
