Robert & Russell meet legendary painter, musician and poet Billy Childish. We discuss white suits, Dada, a Kurt Schwitters-inspired tattoo, punk rock, Van Gogh and why he got expelled from studying at Saint Martins in 1980. We find out about his friendship with Peter Doig, relationship with Tracey Emin, his breakthrough exhibitions with curator Matthew Higgs at not-for-profit art space White Columns (New York) & the ICA (London) and how he started to work with leading Berlin gallery Neugerriemschneider.
