From The Art Newspaper:
To coincide with the 20th anniversary of his gallery, the advertising magnate turned art collector, Charles Saatchi has agreed to answer The Art Newspapers questions as well as your own in our January 2005 issue. Email your queries for Mr Saatchi to: firstname.lastname@example.org or post them to: Charles Saatchi c/o The Art Newspaper, 70 South Lambeth Road, London, SW8 1RL. Please include your name, address, and a contact email or telephone number. All questions must be received by 6 December.
Mr. Saatchi may not be who you think he is anymore. He's into painting now. Really. Nigel Reynolds for the UK Telegraph:
The advertising millionaire widely credited with, and sometimes despised for, putting conceptual art on the map is banishing Emin's unmade bed, Hirst's dead cows and sharks and other well-known icons of the Young British Artists movement from his central London gallery for the next two years.
Instead, he is to show exhibitions of paintings - albeit contemporary ones - a species recently thought close to extinction.
