#24 Jason Avery “You And Uglow?”

Our first ever returning guest! Jason Avery drops by to talk to us about a new spiritual direction he wants to go with his art, teaching himself sculpting(warning to sculptors: we don’t know shit!), what Warhol would do with social media, and slowing down. Sergio’s mic goes out after about an hour or so(will anyone really notice?) so we take a break to fix it, then switch gears and talk about galleries vs. Instagram to gain collectors, the value we put on our own art, and then we get into a good debate about technique vs. idea in art, and artists creating their own visual language. 3 artists who don’t agree on everything make for a much more fascinating conversation than an agreement-fest. We hope you enjoy the direction this episode takes! Rate and review us on iTunes or your favorite listening platform.

#3: Jason Avery “Koonsception”

In our third episode, we finally have our first Caucasian guest, Jason Avery! We talk about the impact of the fires, growing up in the Midwest, and what inspired him to move west. After a brief detour into Tongan food, we get into a lengthy discussion about his art. How he has always been creating, his earliest influences, Bob Ross, school, and how lame his college was except for one important thing. We talk pretty much the rest of the time about how and why he paints what he does, and what he is going after when he creates a painting.There were a lot of interesting ideas and thoughtful philosophies dissected on this episode. We had a great time with Jason, and the stuff we talked about before and after could have been a podcast itself. Pretty deep discussion. Next time? More fart jokes.
