#59 Helice Wen “There’s No Crying In Digital”

We join Helice Wen at her SF studio and talk with her about coming from Shenzhen China, studying as an illustrator at the Academy of Art, discussing the possible narrative in her work, expressing drama, sumi ink, and more. We discuss her paintings “Woven” and “Cake(May All Your Wishes Come True)”, sharing more of yourself in the stories you tell about your art, muralling, and Sergio’s Question Corner! Helice shares her “art circus” David Choe Money idea. See her new painting at the “Femme” Group Exhibition at Mana Contemporary March 2019.

#58 John Wentz “Work Like An American”

John Wentz returns to the podcast to talk to us about his year in Gay Paris, how people taste, and what’s the point of painting, anyway? We also talk about shipping for an international show, European notions of art as a career, public art as it relates to community, the preciousness of art, oil painting’s relevance today, the documentary “Struggle,” and more. John shares a story about getting caught in a riot at a Parisian McDonald’s. We compare Americans and Europeans some more before we get into Sergio’s Question Corner! We open up the floodgates of hate on David Hockney and discuss who is the most overrated artist. Catch John’s show at Hashimoto Contemporary before it comes down on February 23rd.
