In 5 words or less how would you describe the London art scene and community?

EL Little Simz's Gorilla.

Dinner with a collector, where do you go?

EL 45 Jermyn Street.

Best kept secret in London?

What is your favorite museum restaurant?

EL Jose Pizarro at the Royal Academy.

Favorite spot for coffee?

What exhibition have you not managed to make it too yet?

EL It hasn't opened yet but I'm looking forward to Claudette Johnson at the Courtauld. 

5 new artists in the city to watch?
