#26 Brett Crawford “Learn How To Get Your Feelings Hurt”
Brett Crawford came up from San Clemente for his 111 Minna Gallery show and hung out with us at Monty Guy’s studio to record this podcast! He tells us the story of a mural near WonderlandSF gallery before getting deep into his story about coming up from being a drug-addict 18-year felon to turning his life around via art. He tells us about scoring a job at a print shop and used samples to make friends in the art scene, viewing the Choe Show, and his views on life and death. We hear the story behind his painting featuring Geoffrey The Giraffe called “Taking Geoffrey Home,” his “Fuck Cancer” tag, and more. We hear his side of the infamous “Pretentious C” story (fun fact: he was the other guy Josh was talking to!) and how he made a bad first impression at Thinkspace Gallery. We end with some good advice about how to handle rejection and fantasizing to manifest the reality you want. We were really inspired by his story of his drive to redeem himself and you will be too. His 111 Minna show opens Friday July 6th, 2018.
