Arts Hub Show! with Esmé Bruzelius Guron
Enter the all consuming, sensory world of the arts with the 'Arts Hub show'! A mish mash exploring my two greatest obsessions; art and music. This show looks to combine the senses with an 'artwork of the week' which dictates a synaesthetic playlist played throughout the first half of the show. The second half being taken over by the Arts Hub Bulletin! The genres are eclectic and the discussion vast - if you're looking to kick back and absorb some new and old artwork, arts news, and music this is the show for you! (go on, indulge)
This weeks show focuses on the tin foil splattered world of Andy Warhol with a focus on his 1964 silkscreen flowers.
This weeks episode explores the life of Moomin creator, Tove Jansson. I am joined with my friend, Liv, who is from Helsinki where Tove grew up. The focus of the show is two paintings by Tove; 'The Great Flood' 1945 and 'Smoking Girl' 1940. We aim to uncover Tove's inspiring life as well as her much overlooked painterly works, aside from her illustrations which she is most famous for. We go from Scandinavian culture and folklore to Tove's romantic life and beautiful works of art!
This week we delve into the world of installation art via the Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama. As well as discussing her "infinity Mirrors" installation we will be exploring the underbelly of the art world; outsider artists and the relationship between psychology and art.
Iris van Herpen

Linder Sterling and the era of the moon hopper... time to delve into a punky, glam rock, disco fever dream. This Sunday was taken over by the works of photomontagist/ musician/ artistic 'Linder Sterling' with a synaesthetic playlist that indulges in The Pixies, PJ Harvey and (of course) Roxy Music so buckle up and slap on your PVC !
This week we celebrate the life, music and artwork of Joni Mitchell as the clocks move forwards and March swings to a close. For me, Joni is the embodiment of spring itself and on this special mothers day episode I dedicate this to my amazing mother who introduced me to Joni Mitchell. In this episode I focus on her painting 'Alixar Moonrise' 1979 and explore her music as well as her own ~eclectic~ music taste!
