DAVID CUNNINGHAM (Musician)

THE STORY:
"There's not much of a story behind Mina's drawing, she gave it to me for my birthday when she was 5 and I was 55. Despite all those years at art school I'm so sadly lacking in visual sensibility that having a 5 year old responsible for the front of my website seems appropriate."

TOM ELLIOT (Artist)

THE STORY:
“And then there was the primeval forest itself: a thing of glory and terror. Von Bricken had never seen anything like it. Where were the beech trees? For there was everything else: ash, aspen, maple, oak, linden, willow, birch, elm, hornbeams and spindle trees, pine and fir, all growing in a crazed jumble, amidst a vast botanical charnel house of rotting trunks, roots and limbs. The irregularity was dreadful, sublime, perfect”
(Quote: Simon Schama ‘Landscape and Memory' 1995)

TARA SELLIOS (Artist)

THE STORY:
"I want the work to have a real sensuality about it, and feel otherworldly in a sense. As with artists of the baroque period, I want to arouse an internal, carnal response in the viewer."

ROBERT KNOKE (Artist)

THE STORY:
"I grew up in the atelier of my father who was also an artist. My talent for drawing showed quite early... I used to observe my father, how he painted naked bodies and I just started to copy him. From the age of five until sixteen, all I drew was naked women in high heels."

BOBBIE MANNIX (Designer)

THE STORY:
"There were 120 gangs, 10 members each, which posed quite a challenge. One of the ways I distinguished gang from gang was by colour and then, of course, their gang names also helped in the direction that I went with them."

STUART MOXHAM (Musician)

THE STORY:
"We made it as different and as gimmicky as possible... with our understated sense of humour thrown in for good measure."
