Simphiwe Petros - Gusto Project Presenter

During each show a short background about the episode's featured artist is showcased, after which Simphiwe Petros (the Gusto Project presenter) and at times his Gusto Project Panel has a discussion with the artist. The discussions provide an entertaining diversity of questions, opinions and perspectives. During the discussion, the Gusto Project aims to determine and describe the essence of the featured artist and each show ends or is preceded by with a photographic shoot which Johnathan Andrews (the founder of Gusto Project) conducts with the artist. The aim of the shoot is to "capture the essence" of the artist - photos from the shoot and commentary by Johnathan about his visual interpretation of the artist features prominently in social media exposure surrounding each episode and could also be featured during an episode.
