A soundtrack from the Colourful Radio from Jan 5th, where I introduced Patrick StPaul live in my monthly “Silvia  Krupinska’s Artist Of the Month”  hosted by fantastic Rosemary Laryea, during her “Life and Culture show”.

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.


David Roux-Fouillet Biography

David was born in 1978, of Danish and French parentage. He received his first training from the Engelsholm Hojskole in Bredsten, Denmark, where he studied jewellery design, glass blowing and graphic design. This was followed by a degree in jewellery and object design at the Haute Ecole d’Art and de Design in Geneva, Switzerland, where he was awarded the Marsee prize in 2003. This was followed by an invitation to participate in the KUAD Artist Residency at the Kyoto University of Art and Design in 2004, where he studied fashion and space design. His most recent degree was a Masters at the RCA in London, where he studied Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork & Jewellery. During this period, Roux-Fouillet was nominated for the Arts Foundation Product Design Fellowship, was commissioned to create an installation for the London flagship store of Harry Winston, and was awarded the
Conran Award and Theo Fennell Award for Overall Excellence from the Royal College of Art.

I would like to write today about one of the best, if not the best private view I’ve experienced. Why and what happened? I’ve decided to approach talking with people during the event in a different way, and combine that with gaining  my skills as an interviewer. What for? I’ve been given my own show on Colourful Radio! Becoming their artist in residence will give me a chance to report and portray  monthly, an artist of my choice. My slot is going to be 20 minutes and will be running during  “Art, culture and life with Rosemary Laryea“. The first show is already on, on October 2oth, at 12.0o. I’ll be portraying the winner of New Sensation Artist, Saatchi Gallery’s and Channel 4’s competition. There are 4 finalists, and the winner will be revealed tomorrow, October 8th. I need every chance to practice, I can get! That’s why October’s Private View at Debut Contemporary,  was so useful. Nigel from Flixels gave me a microphone, and he’d been recording the variation of dialogues, interviews of the night. Dropping just a few examples, I talked to at least a dozen of artists, photographers,  even a couple of politicians and an icon of British photography, Mr Angelo Valentino. Yes, I got to talk with him, and we had a very interesting discussion about current art scene and future of film, music and photography in ever changing digitalized world. Now I just have to get the files from Nigel from Flixels and try to listen, whether it all worked. I’ll bring another blog article fully dedicated to it, once I have a better idea of what I have, and what sort of quality it came out. I’m already so looking forward to it!  Until next time, have a good day and all the best to you all.  Silvia
