Considering Art Podcast – Jiro Osuga, painter

London-based for more than 40 years, Jiro Osuga talks about his difficult childhood in Japan, how he loves observing the detail and absurdity of city life, his penchant for visual humour, his use of different canvas formats, his highly original interactive website and his fascination with airports that inspired his latest solo exhibition Departures.
