In this podcast, based on The Art Newspaper's regular interview series, our host Ben Luke talks to artists in depth. He asks the questions you've always wanted to: who are the artists, historical and contemporary, they most admire? Which are the museums they return to? What are the books, music and other media that most inspire them? What do they get up to in the studio every day? And what is art for, anyway?
Series 1 of A brush with... focused mostly on painters, but the artists in subsequent series use a wealth of media and work across a range of disciplines.
The podcast offers a fascinating insight into the inspirations, the preoccupations and the working lives of some of the most prominent artists today.
