David Batchelor (1955) is a Scottish artist based in London who has been working on colour for 25 years. Last December, I had the chance to go back to London and, because of my interest in the colour field, I asked him for a meeting in order to have a talk. Kindly, he accepted it and invited me to his studio, located in east London, which is an industrial area also characterized by the presence of many artists’ studios. His amazing neat 150 m2 studio space is divided in three sections: one for office job, another one for creative purposes and the display of his artwork, and the third one for cutting materials and using sprays.
