Steven Emmanuel Artist of the Week Interview

1) Savory or Sweet?

2) Which artist has influenced you the most or challenged the way you look at things?
It is a really difficult question to answer because different artists work have influenced and challenged me at different times. At the moment I am more intrigued with artists who are quite different to myself and enjoy finding a conversation between their work and my own. A few of the artists who’s work I find really interesting at the moment are; Lindsey Sears, Anton Henning, Rebecca Warren, Nicolas Provost, and Marcus Coates.

3) How would you briefly describe the differences in experiencing an undergraduate degree to studying a Masters?
I was uncertain of what I wanted at undergraduate and when I started my MA I had already made those decisions, which made it a much more rewarding experience.

4) What gets you through the day?

5) What always makes you smile, without fail?
Painting my ball.

6) If you were going away for a long time and could only take one thing with you, what would that be?
My ball of paint.

7) If you weren't an artist, what career path would you chose?
A stable one.

8) What three words would you use to describe yourself?
Stubborn, neurotic and considered.

9) What will you do after answering these interview questions?
Nothing, I have no plans.

10) What is your favorite festive holiday and why?
None of them.
