If there was one piece of art you could feature in, which would it be and why?
We would want to be dripped on by Jackson Pollock in 1951...at the 'eureka moment' when he discovered Modern.
Who inspires you and why? an artist, a family member, someone current or historical?
A girl who we refer to as 'Log Girl'. we saw her for a fleeting moment 10 years ago in Rochester... she wore a log around her neck as a necklace. We're also inspired by our younger selves, back when we were art students, as well as Pablo & Delia who inspired our first collaboration.
What are your cultural aspirations? what do you still want to see, do and achieve?
We still want to... See a new primary colour. Do modern, relevant work. Achieve modern, relevant work.
What are your favourite cultural cities in the world and why?
Perth - it's the most isolated city anywhere in the World and they don't care.
What are you up to at the moment and where can we find it?
We have been looking for the new colour - and we can't find it anywhere - but we have made a piece of work about it for Spring Summer 2015, called 'Colours' which you will find in our store now... http://www.antoniandalison.co.uk (February 2014)
