Q&A

If there was one piece of art you could feature in, which would it be and why?

I would choose to feature in a film by Douglas Gordon. His films are exactly what art is all about: emotions. 

Who inspires you and why? An artist, a family member, someone current or historical?

Filippo Brunelleschi, who was one of the foremost architects and engineers of the Italian Renaissance. I love how he was so creative in so many different disciplines.

What are your cultural aspirations? What do you still want to see, do and achieve?

I want art to follow music's lead - to make sure everyone has an art experience like we all already have a music experience. 

What are your favourite cultural cities in the world and why?

Berlin is my favourite cultural city because it is so diverse.

What are you up to at the moment and where can we find it?

My company, IkonoTV, is developing a new premium app. You can find out about it by following our website: http://ikono.org. For more information about art following music's lead, here is my recent video for TEDxHECParis.
