Playing with the language of mediums.
Jean-Philippe Dordolo’s studio is located in an industrial building in Peckham. Though small in size, it’s views of south London are enchanting. The space is illuminated by two natural windows, and the artist populates it with a vast array of tools, along with a mood-board of his personal research, which one can find stuck on the wall. Most noteworthy, these references include pop culture icons such as Family Guy or The Simpsons, alongside images of shapes, Renaissance portraits, personal photographs, and a hanging TV screen. Ahead of the artist’s Master’s degree at the Slade School of Fine Arts, we caught up with Dordolo to learn more about his unique takes on colour – and how he achieves something voluminous and sculptural out of something flat.
