        How the Featured Artists Guides Work

        Our Featured Artists guides offer a deep dive into the artist behind the art. Take our guide, Gavin Turk: Giving Permanence to the Impermanent and Worth to the Worthless, where we take you through the evolution of the much-celebrated artist’s career and explore Gavin’s relationship with Britain and with the climate, or our piece, Magnus Gjoen: Reviving the Old to Make Way for the New, in which we track the artist’s overarching influences. Both guides offer an understanding of just what it is that makes an artist tick.

        Featured Artist Guides You Won’t Want To Miss

        Among our Featured Artists guides are pieces on some of the most highly regarded artists working today, alongside emerging new names in the art world. One guide that shows a glimpse of studio life and the process of creating work is Think what you want about Bruce McLean’s sculptures, just don’t think about them too much. Another must-read is Barry Johnson: The Art of Creating New Personas, which details the unusual winding road that led to Barry’s career as an artist.
