Ey Up Sean Kaye
Without getting overly sentimental I can confidently say Sean Kaye has easily been the most significant person in my development as an artist over the years. From interviewing, and accepting me onto the Leeds Foundation course, teaching me, hiring me to then teach (which in itself was probably the biggest learning curve) and co-running blip blip blip, the amount I have learnt from, and also feel I owe to him, is massive. I think it’s fair to say that I am one of hundreds of people who also feel the same.
Now the head of the Foundation course at the British Higher School of Art & Design in Moscow, I catch up with Sean whilst he is briefly back in the UK to basically ask him about all the stuff I should have asked him over the last decade or so and to find out more about his own art education experience and how that came to form his highly reputable approach to teaching and management style.
