Adelaide artist Jimmy Cochran, better known as Jimmy C, has created large scale murals in his unique drip style and exhibited his work in galleries around the world. We first met Jimmy in 2010, not long after he moved to London and have enjoyed a close personal and occasional working relationship ever since.

His artworks have been an ever present fixture of London since his arrival here; his trademark drip heart is now the official meeting point at London Bridge Station, and his depiction of David Bowie in Brixton became the first piece of un-commissioned artwork in the UK to receive listed status from English Heritage.

We talk about Jimmy’s artistic success and his intimate relationship with East London. As always there’s no plan for the conversation so we go off on a few tangents too.

You can find out more about Jimmy and see his work on his instagram @akajimmyc
