True Tales of Luxury Podcast: Stephen Webster

"One of the, I think, fascinating things about colour is it shows us the limits of language, it shows us what we can’t say."

Artist and writer David Batchelor’s rise to prominence began at Nottingham Trent Polytechnic where he studied Fine Art. He has exhibited across the globe, from the UK and continental Europe to the US and Latin America. He has also penned two books, Minimalism (1997) and Chromophobia (2000), as well as being the editor for Colour (2008) and a contributor to a number of journals. Batchelor says he gets his inspiration from the city he lives in. “London is always a source of delight and instruction — not just, say, the neon signs on Brick Lane, but things like the reflection flowing in puddles.”
