The latest episode of the interview series “Like Knows Like” features New York-based illustrator Victo Ngai. I’ve followed her work for awhile so it was great to hear her talk about her work (and sing some Backstreet Boys). If you missed it, I previously posted Victo’s work here and here.

Video Interview With Artist Andrea Wan On Her First Solo Show in Denmark

Here’s a lovely interview with my friend, Hong Kong-born, Berlin-based, artist Andrea Wan as she prepares for her first solo show, in Denmark. Vancouver really misses you Andrea, me especially.

I love the part where she talks about the improvised stories she used to tell into a tape recorder when she was younger. Things like that can unlock ideas that are buried deep in your subconscious.

My mom kept an old journal of mine from grade 3, and when I found it a few years ago, it was hilarious to see how many of the stories were about someone getting lost. It didn’t matter if it was a boy, a snail, a knight. No matter what happened in the beginning and middle of my stories, somewhere near the end, whoever it was, they got lost. I guess it was my biggest fear at the time.

My friend, Austrian artist Nychos returned home to Vienna, and wasted no time covering a building with one of his signature animal dissections. This one’s a giant rat, “Snake Bait”. You have to see him paint in person to understand how fast he works.

Watch the process video below (brace yourself for some Judas Priest aka turn your volume up).
