    Jackson Superhero – MoA Bonus Episode

    This week Gary Mansfield speaks to Author Darren Garwood, a children’s storybook author that created a Superhero character named after his Son Jackson.

    Jackson Superhero might not be a real name, but it is a story about a real boy, and as the name suggests, Jackson is far from ordinary.

    By day, a rare disease limits his ability to move freely, but at night he is far from grounded. When the sleeping hours come around, and weightlessness takes over, Jackson takes to the skies.

    Ep.102 David Henty - Ministry of Arts Podcast

    This week Gary Mansfield speaks to David Henty

    “He has painted more Lowery’s that Lowery”

    David’s history as an artist started, with a short stint in HM Prison for forgery in the mid-1990s. While serving the sentence that David was inspired to start painting after being seduced by the stories of the artists he’d study. Fascinated by their technical genius, he became more and more interested in attaining a level of expertise and being ‘connected’ to the very psyche of the artists.
