What emerging artists do you admire?

Oscar Foster-Kane
Saskia Dixie
Sadness

What about masters – do you have any?

Michael Haneke
Burial
Chris Cunningham

What is your most untapped potential?

Drawing. Also there was a time when I would film my trips back home from the pub; somehow I always made it in one piece. I feel like there might be a niche audience for that on TikTok.

What is the role of art in your life?

My joy and the bane of my existence.

What’s your favourite dinosaur and why?

I like plesiosaurs; I’ve always liked how sleek they look, but upon further research I found out they are technically not dinosaurs. So Rex from Toy Story.
