The Apollo podcast: Jonathan Yeo

17 December 2017

In this Apollo podcast, Thomas Marks meets the acclaimed portraitist Jonathan Yeo, who discusses a new series of paintings inspired by 3D scans of his own head, as well as his first sculpture – a self-portrait that was painted by Yeo in three dimensions in a Virtual Reality ‘life room’ before being cast in bronze. Scroll down for images of some of the artworks discussed in this podcast.
