In the studio with Gary Hume as he prepares for his Tate Britain exhibition



‘I only get pleasure [while painting] if there is a problem, and when I solve that problem I need to make another one’ says Gary Hume. Part of the internationally celebrated group of Young British Artists that studied at London’s Goldsmiths College in the late 1980s, Hume has gone on to become one of Britain’s most highly respected painters.

In this film, made on the eve the Gary Hume  exhibition at Tate Britain, Hume invites TateShots into his studio and talks about his working practice and his famous preference for household gloss paints.
