THE SOAK UP episode 2 from Venus & the Cat with style writing and fine art legend Remi Rough comes in three 15-minute slices for your viewing pleasure.
THE SOAK UP episode 2.1 covers off how it all began for Remi Rough, growing up on the graff scene, influences, evolution of styles, banksy, graff vs street art and more besides. Note, artists don't always have fibre optics in their studios, so there's a little freezing of the picture in the early minutes and mid-way through, but the sound quality is perfect - sit back and relax and check the opinions from a master.
In the THE SOAK UP episode 2.2 we talk to Remi about what his upcoming
plans are, artistic ambitions, where it all began, Jackson Pollock, his work in graphic design, the aim of perfection vs expressionism, how a piece comes together, the connectivity between style writing and fine art, the importance of documentation in the lineage of modern and contemporary art, getting stuck in brambles, not eating sweets or getting too pissed at your opening nights.
In the THE SOAK UP episode 2.3 we talk to Remi about his school art (and a not to be missed story about his GCSE art project), art education, favourite galleries, tap dancing and ballet at Italia Conti, cooking, making music and The Dead Can Rap, Remi's Spotify Playlist (see below for link) and PJoys - Remi's sustainable PJ brand (https://www.pjoys.co.uk/).
Note, this was lockdown and we're all on overburdened wifi, so expect some visual freezing, but the audio is perfect for a listen throughout.
