Episode 82 - Gary Mansfield from Ministry of Arts Podcast, UK
10.12.2021 - By Art Wank
Finally, we've found someone who swears more than us! Gary Mansfield is an artist and curator with a background in crime and prison time, It wasn't until Gary was inspired by an art teacher in prison that he took up art and became passionate about it. Whilst in prison he contacted young British artists at the time, such as Tracey Emin, who write back to him with encouragement for his new career in the arts. after leaving prison he completed a degree in Fine Art, he is now a successful artist, curator, and podcast host. We loved speaking to Gary about his take on being an artist, hosting an arts podcast, and much more.
Gary's Ministry of Arts podcast - 'Possibly the World's most inclusive art podcast', has over 100 episodes where he talks to emerging, established, or world-renowned artists each week in his quite unique manner.
Thanks so much, Gary, great to chat with you.
