I am an artist and run the Knight Webb Gallery in Brixton. The gallery is at the centre of the Brixton creative community, and many of the artists I work with live in Brixton. I actually live about a mile away with my family in Dulwich, so I am at hand if needed to manage the holiday apartment. I buy my fresh food from Brixton Market, and rarely go into central London, as Brixton is usually much more fun.
Brixton is about people, people from everywhere, and so many of them will stop and talk, that its hard to get any work done.
