We’re excited to be back with a new series that’ll take us over the next five weeks in the build-up to the AOAP joyously colourful summer auction. Rosa Torr will be chatting to some of the participating artists including Lothar Goetz, Liorah Tchiprout, Kev Munday and Scarlett Bowman, as well as BBC Arts correspondent and Art Director Maeve Doyle. Check it out and stick with us this series for some more insightful interviews with world renowned artists. Enjoy!

EPISODE 1: LOTHAR GOETZ

Join Rosa Torr for episode one of the series in conversation with world renowned artist Lothar Goetz. Lothar’s practice ranges from site-specific wall paintings and room-sized installations to paintings and drawings. His work constantly references architecture and space; his painting is characterised by its use of abstract geometric forms, lines of intense colour, juxtaposed with one another. We talk about his use of colour and interestingly the politics of using certain colours in certain public spaces as well as his interest in theatre and architecture.
Lothar is participating in Art on a Postcard's upcoming Summer Auction, head to artonapostcard.com to take a look at all artworks and place a bid. All funds go directly to the Hep C Trust. 

EPISODE 2: LIORAH TCHIPROUT

In Episode 2, Rosa Torr has a chat with the multidisciplinary artist Liorah Tchiprout. Liorah’s work is concerned with belonging, girlhood and the theatrical. Informed by Jewish folklore and the cannon of art history, she is interested in the contemporary relevance of drawing and play. She builds puppet characters to construct her own pantheon from which she draws images. They discuss her inspirations, deriving from a history of Jewish puppetry, and Liorah talks about her unique process. 

Liorah is participating in Art on a Postcard’s upcoming Summer Auction. Her postcard sized artwork is called Blue Magda. All cards start at £50 and you can bid online through our website artonapostcard.com from 25th June - 9th July. 

Episode 3: Kev Munday

Kev Munday creates colourful utopian worlds and invites the viewer to spend some time living in them. Kev has created artwork for brands including Walt Disney, IKEA, Artfinder and Uni-Ball and his art is collected and exhibited worldwide. He was recently named by the Telegraph as a ‘British artist to invest in right now.'

Using bold lines and block colours, the vibrancy of Munday’s style creates an enthralling visual experience. In the episode, Rosa Torr speaks with Kev about his process, and the importance in Kev's work to make it accessible for all ages.
