OA: What music are you currently listening to and why?
RM: I mostly listen to radio 2 in my studio, it has a good mix of music , discussion, entertainment, news and humour.
OA: Which living artists do you most admire and why?
RM: David Hockney. I consider him to be one of the greatest artists of his generation. Aside from his spectacular use of colour, he has embraced new technologies to reflect and portray his work. I am particularly impressed with his iPad drawings.
