In this episode Gary Mansfield speaks to Jimmy Cauty (@towerblock1)
Jimmy Cauty aka James Cauty, Musician, K Foundation artist, deconstructed rock star, part time model village builder, honorary undertaker, town planner, record producer, wooly-back-misfit, armchair rioter, head composer/conductor/AV mixer for The L-13 Light Industrial Orchestra
Over a diverse and productive anti-career Cauty has distinguished himself by somehow coming up with at least one must-have-counter-culture-design-classic per decade, we are not sure what he does the rest of the time.
Cauty works closely with the L-13 Light Industrial Workshop London to develop projects both ambitious and diminutive, make prints & other artwork editions and convert impractical artistic visions to reality.
