Interview with Cymon Eckel

What first brought you to east London?
A desire for discovery, music, fun, people, ideas and unearthing the strange. The Griffin was almost poetic on my first visit, it’s fantastic how the once ordinary becomes fascinating and unique.

Where do you think is hot at the moment for arts, going out and eating?
Considering the pop up nature of food and drink almost anywhere, this weekend I was at The Horniman museum where a farmers market features diversity such as; Barbican; a hairdressing stall alongside, Sri Lankan curries and Mr Muffin who delivers Savouries by a custom made bicycle, complete with handlebar moustache. On art I’m heading over to the RA for the summer show that looks great, otherwise just roaming, feeds me.

What are you favourite three cities around the world and why?
London, Berlin and New York, whilst not too much differential in the dynamics between these three, it’s the abundance of humans, creativity, output and ideas that keep me excited about visits there.
