Podcast of the Day: We Eat Art

I’m always on the hunt for good art-related podcasts and We Eat Art is a great one. Hosts John Mejias (New York) and Zak Smith (Los Angeles) make it seem easy, but interesting interviews are not as simple as putting a mic in front of someone who makes interesting artwork. These two obviously do their research and ask really great questions. I’ve only listened to a couple episodes so far, but I’m definitely gonna check out some more (upcoming episodes will feature Mike Giant and James Jean among others).

Check out the episode with Texas-born, New York-based artist Sean McCarthy (who was Zak’s roommate for six years) and see more of his paintings below. There’s some bad language so if that bothers you maybe skip this one.

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”
