The day Sight Unseen visited the studio, there was another relic in our midst — Nobel’s old drawings from 1997, made before Uglycute was born. “They illustrate my interest in architecture and design,” he points out. “I always did loads of drawings like this, and when I showed them, there was always some sculpture in the room. In a sense it’s quite close to what I do now, a lot of text on the walls paired with an installation. And I still draw a lot.”
