#56 Keep The Sauce Hot

This will go down as one of most awkward episodes of all time. After failing to record the first hour of our show, we attempt to recreate the unrecorded conversation. We talk about art pricing, compromising your vision, art business and more. Some stuff may have gotten repeated because we couldn’t remember what part we hadn’t recorded. We also talk about American Illustration dun goofin’, do a quick Reddit Audio Theatahh about an entitled “birch,” get into some of Sergio’s Hot Pic of The Month, and cap off the episode talking about artists we hate.

#40 “Jackson Bollocks”

It’s episode 40 so naturally we start the episode off by talking about 40’s.

We give our takes and our takes on other people’s takes. We talk about the Conor/Kabib fight, what our art might sound like, recapping the Hiroshi Sato episode, our David Choe money answers, and we answer a buttload of listener questions! We talk about the two portraits that Josh did for the upcoming Abend Gallery show, then end with some random silly chit-chat at the end as we often do with the solo shows.

#35: Beefy Traxx

Another episode of Machine Gun Kelly’s favorite art podcast! We sit down to talk about Jeremy Mann’s pop-up show and his movie “The Conductor”, which leads to talk about street art vs. graffiti, superhero movie talk, white rappers, the episode of Harsh Truth with the Thinkspace Gallery owner(is WTD moving to LA???), pay-to-play galleries, assorted randomness, and we get into Sergio’s brain a bit! What’s really behind the Painted Roses series and when is he gonna stop repeating himself so goddamn much?! We talk about a piece of Sergio’s that goes in a new direction for him and what that might mean for his future and for artists who change in general. And then it just kinda falls apart at the end in true WTD fashion. Make sure you’re following @mainloop for more info about all of his upcoming shows.
