Every creative spirit - whether painter, writer, sculptor or designer - craves inspirational settings in which to exercise his or her craft. The right physical space can conjure up the artist's muse, stir up new ideas, and ignite passion for one's work. This volume is a celebration of the important relationship between artists and their environments. Written by a veteran photographer and editor, it features intimate, visual profiles of international artists from a range of traditions working in a range of media and disciplines, revealing how they have created spaces that inspire and enhance their work. Visit the stylish flat of jazzy Parisian painter Francoise Biver; be amused by the fabulous, fanciful, phantasmagoric Luna Parc home of the New Jersey multimedia artist Ricky Boscarino; and be inspired by the San Francisco chic of the Brazilian-born sculptor and painter Silvia Poloto.
