BBC4: What Do Artists Do All Day? Derek Boshier
What Do Artists Do All Day? is a well-established BBC4 documentary strand looking at the practices and philosophies of artists as they produce new work. I worked on an episode about an LA-based British artist Derek Boshier with director Zara Hayes (12 Year Old Lifer, The Battle of The Sexes).
Derek Boshier came to prominence in the 60s and was known as one of the British pop artists alongside David Hockney and Allen Jones. He also featured in Ken Russell’s famous BBC art documentary Pop Goes the Easel (1962) alongside Peter Blake, Pauline Boty and Peter Phillips. Boshier’s creative output covers a wide spectrum of art from painting to drawing, video, sculpture, photography, collages and even record covers. He has collaborated with the likes of David Bowie and The Clash, and his work often features themes of social and political commentary.
The What Do Artists Do All Day? episode on Derek Boshier will be broadcast later on in the year on BBC4 and will also be available on BBC iPlayer.
