Featured Artist: Christopher Clack of DPP Studio
Where is your studio? How long have you had your studio here? and if you share it, what do your studio mates do and how else does working alongside other artists help you?
My studio (also my home) is on Oglander road SE15 so in reality I am physically closer to east Dulwich then Peckham! I have been here 10 years.
Tell us about your practice: How did you get into it and what do you love about it? What’s the most difficult part of the process?
Originally I was a painter and sculptor, some years back while struggling to achieve something in paint i turned to a computer, and now my work is mainly digital producing large format digital prints. I have turned the skill into my main income source as I also print professionally for other artists. the most difficult part of the process is finding the clear time to be able to think consistently about a piece of work without interruptions.
How do you feel about being part of the first Peckham-wide open studios as part of Peckham Festival? What is the best part about being part of a wider open studio event with so many other creatives?
I have been in the area for a long time and studied at Camberwell School of Art in the late 1970’s, so have seen Peckham change a lot. I believe the festival will be part of a continuing process of raising the profile of Peckham. I think being part of such an event will give us all a good overview of what’s out there in Peckham at the moment.
Tell us a secret!
A lot of the time I don’t know what I am doing.
