Interview  with  Dazed  Digital
Richard  Malone's  studio is a constant mess. That’s just how it is – chaos, clutter, disarray. It’s here, an old shed in the middle of nowhere in the Irish countryside, he comes back to. Here he can concentrate fully. His heaven. “My brilliant shit hole,” he laughs.
