Secrets of the Studio

Just out from Thames & Hudson is a new book offering a rare insight into the work spaces of some of Britain’s most celebrated and emerging talents.  It gives a compelling behind-the-scenes look into their artistic processes, capturing them at their most creative, experimental and sometimes chaotic!

Featuring 120 artists living and working in Britain today, from the most noteworthy to new, upcoming talent, Sanctuary offers a feast of specially commissioned photographs (by Robin Friend) while following each artist through their working routines.  Portraits, images at work, places of inspiration and incisive interviews from Howard Hodgkin, Grayson Perry (fresh from his exhibition at The British Museum), Peter Blake and many others, the book explores today’s art world and contemporary art practice.
