LISTEN NOW: NICK BASHALL
War artist and one of England’s leading portrait painters, Nick Bashall, reflects on his time working with the British Army in Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan in a new episode of General Talk.
Discussing the consuming desire to capture life on the frontline, Nick explains that he doesn’t romanticise what he sees but feels “it’s important to capture ordinary human beings who are principled, modest, proud, dealing with extraordinary situations.”
