Discover the artists behind the books


Coco Capitán (b.1992) lives and works in London, UK

– Home and studio — together or apart?
Sometimes together, sometimes apart! At the moment together, obviously, and I feel it’s working quite well for me since my home and studio are large enough to have a room for painting, an office room, and a photo room. I do try and make strict rules for myself on what time is in use for each.

Do you have any daily rituals?
Coffee and reading for the start of the day, bath for the end of the day.

– What is the first art book you remember?
In my home, a giant encyclopedia, with pictures of everything for a kid in the pre-internet age.

– What is your studio/creative soundtrack?
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Requiem (especially before a deadline!)

– What is the favourite thing you have in your studio?
My archive, particularly the early years.

Did you always want to be an artist?
No, it sort-of just caught me!

– What does a free day look like?
I’m not sure about that one – let me know if you figure it out!
