14. Gary Mansfield & The Art That Saved Him


And what a way to kick off the year on Jo's Art History Podcast!!

It’s Episode 14 and on today’s podcast Jo sits down with artist Gary Mansfield, artist, podcaster and arts for all activists who says art saved him.

It was during an art class one day while Gary was serving a 14 year prison sentence that he came across the work of Ray Richardson, and the rest they say is history!

In this episode we talk about the conceptual art of the YBAs, why it is always important to look again, never assume anything and also speak about the rising star that is Sarah Maple, a favourite of Jo’s too!
