We interviewed Stephen Coburn at his amazing studio in the artistic community, Headland Artists, at Georges Heights, Mosman. We had a long chat with Stephen about his father, the artist, John Coburn, his days at the National Art School where he met Reg Mombassa and formed the band, Mental As Anything. We heard some great stories about the bans and his time at art school.

Stephen is making sculptures for an upcoming sculpture trail at the beautiful Akuna Bay starting November 15th,  in conjunction with Sydney Road Gallery and D'Albora Marinas. Be sure to check it out, designed for everyone to interact with and touch! Great for a family day out.

Stephen is also a leading conservator and we talked to him about his craft and some interesting information about painting conservation.

We also asked him about a past project he was involved with called, Utes in the Paddock, where artists and the community in Ootha, Central NSW was called upon to turn old utes into artworks. It sounded like such a fun thing to be a part of. 

Thanks for talking to us, Stephen, we could have talked for hours!
