Talk Art

Talk Art

“All we wanted to do was make art accessible, non-academic, non-elitist, gossipy and fun” – Russell Tovey, quoted in the New York Times

Engaging, informative and open to everyone, Talk Art established itself as the must-listen cultural podcast in both the UK and the US, and it has now garnered 1.5 million downloads. With infectious enthusiasm, Russell and Robert have opened the doors to the art world and have welcomed people of all ages and backgrounds into the conversation.

Talk Art, the book, is a beautiful and accessible celebration of contemporary art, and a guidebook to navigating and engaging with the art world. Informal and jargon-free, this book proves that art really is for everyone. With a wealth of imagery (some never-before-seen in print) and an informative and engaging narrative, Talk Art will become the must-have book that art lovers return to again and again.

The book features highlights from interviews with: Tracey Emin, Rose Wylie, Helen Cammock, Jordan Casteel, Edward Enninful, Jerry Saltz, Elton John, Billy Porter, Grayson Perry, Michael Stripe, Lena Dunham, Rose McGowan, Ian McKellen, Deborah Frances-White, David Shrigley, Toyin Ojih Odutola and Michael Craig-Martin, among others.
