Jeff Soto has been a hero to me for many years and it was a dream come true to be able to sit with him and have a chat about his art and his experiences so far in London. Soto is one of the kings of the Pop Surrealist/Lowbrow art scenes in America and he was here for his first ever show in London, at the Stolenspace Gallery. It was a fascinating interview that left me with a newfound respect for him and his art. Ladies & gentlemen, I present to you, the highly esteemed Jeff Soto!
