New York-based artist Robert Szot is a bit of a hero amongst amateur and professional artists alike, and his beautiful abstract works have won him a well-deserved following in the US, UK and elsewhere. In this interview you will see him as - probably - never before! Listen to Robert chat candidly about everything from his work and love of Edith Piaf to how he would cope on Mars and answering that all-important question for a Texan living in NYC - bagels or BBQ? He's profound, funny and inspiring ... so pour yourself a drink, sit back and enjoy!
Abstract painter Trudy Montgomery is the first brave volunteer to chat to me in the Art Speak studio.
