promoter, curator, manager, agent, marketing director, owner

Joanne is the driving force behind this art business and its success.  Every waking moment is devoted to Paul’s success as an artist and to their international nomadic lifestyle, which is itself the inspiration behind most of Paul’s work .  It is this lucky partnership that led them on this extraordinary life path that many artists can only dream of.

our podcast host

Architect, drummer, kimchi maker and dad-at-home, I grew up and took my studies in architecture in the UK, before settling in France with my wife.  While working these days as a graphic designer and architect near Paris, my experimental art-rock band continues to enjoy pushing creative boundaries.  The opportunity to sit down and delve into the life story of Paul Ygartua is extremely exciting, and I’m looking forward to digging deep.
