Judson Monroe joins to talk about how Sergio and him met, the difference between academies and ateliers, studying in Florence, Marc Dalessio, New Orleans, why the West Coast is the best coast, and Italian art collectors. Is Iran the next big art market? Is contemporary art becoming a meritocracy? Which group shows are worth doing? We discuss it! Also, hacky concepts, and doing commissions. We talk about Judson’s painting and he has a cool story to tell about it. Judson then tells us about how Sean Cheetham influenced him in an interesting way. We discuss if the fashion world can teach us about marketing. Check out his wife’s website www.realistartresource.com.
