I met with David Roux-Fouillet at the Andipa Contemporary, in 162 Walton Street in London. After seeing his show called Morphoses, I made up my mind that he was the perfect person for me to talk about in discussion with amazing and award winning Rosemary Laryea on “Silvia Krupinska’s Artist of the Month” slot on Colourful Radio (on Nov 24th 2011 at 12.10 pm). I absolutely love his work, and I have to admit he is one of the most talented designers/artists I’ve met. If you missed the live slot, you can listen to it again here.
