Today’s conversation has been eye opening for me, and one of the best I had in a long time. I hope you’ll find it as fruitful as I did. Today we discuss the future of painting, and specifically the chances of the field’s survival in light of the upcoming AI apocalypse. We managed to sketch out a few early signs for hope. Can painting continue guarding the fortress against the robot barbarians at the gate? Stay tuned… We are very fortunate to have the great Ilya Gefter back on the podcast. Ily...
Today’s episode touches on one of the most pressing topics in today’s art discourse: the rise of image-generating artificial intelligence. AI burst onto the scene like a hurricane, and today’s guest is right in the eye of the storm, he is the one and only, Greg Rutkowski. Greg is a towering figure in the world of illustration and concept art. He’s done work for the most influential trendsetters in the field, including Disney, Ubisoft, Netflix, Warner Bros, and my personal favorite, Wizards of...
Today’s episode taught me a great deal about a very important and pressing topic: the intersection of art and parenting. I don’t have kids yet, so I invited two special guests to shine a light on this topic, they are Emily Fossum and Hannah Leach. Two working artists who are also full-time busy moms. They also happen to be star students of mine, who can outperform me with techniques I pretty much invented. We spoke about how to build your own art space, making art as a family, forging art cam...
Steven Diamant is the owner and founder of Arcadia Contemporary, one of the world’s leading galleries for realistic art. Steven and I covered several pressing topics: how to work with galleries, the business of sales, the importance of Instagram for artists, how art universities are delinquent in their duties, timelessness and trends in the arts, and more. This is also the first podcast episode that I recorded in-person! I came down to Arcadia with two microphones and we recorded the talk rig...
Gustavo Ramos is a Brazilian-born Arizona-based painter. We touched on how to plan a painterly process using layers, how to deal with mistakes throughout the process, how to nurture artistic growth in children, how to paint successfully from photographs, how develop personal style, tips for getting commissions, and much much more. We also throw some shade at Hyperrealism, so get excited for that. Gustavo has some brilliant insights to share, so I’m exceedingly glad to bring his voice to all o...
Today we are touching on a topic that is pressing and urgent for many of us - can we paint without using solvents? As you know, solvents are harmful to our health, and eliminating or reducing their usage should be on everyone’s agenda. But how can we do it? We will be diving deeply into this question, and providing actionable technical insights you can start using pretty much as soon as you finish this episode. Hope you find this information as valuable as I did!My guest today is Kimberly Bro...
Painting has been proclaimed dead many times throughout history, and yet people like me and probably you continue to sling paint around, still believing it matters. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this true-crime episode, where we explore the alleged death-scenes, victims, and perpetrators. And what a treat, ladies and gentlemen, setting an ART’S COOL record, the great Ilya Gefter is back on the podcast for the 2nd episode in a row, and 3rd episode in total. I introduced Ilya when he first came on...
Today’s topic is "Realism," what it meant for different painters in different times and ways to think about it today. Very importantly, we also discuss why detail is the enemy of experience, and how Courbet was basically a troll. We are very fortunate to have the great Ilya Gefter back on the podcast. Ilya Gefter is a painter, art educator and the founder and director of the Visual Art Center in Tel-Aviv, Israel. Ilya has shown in 14 solo exhibitions before he was 40, he’s wo...
Today’s episode is absolutely packed with down-to-earth technical advice which I expect any painting enthusiast will appreciate, and a few inflammatory opinions which may or may not stir the pot. This episode is an Ask Me Anything episode, which means instead of having a guest I can question, the questions were directed at me by a panel of my Patreon supporters. We covered many important topics, such as: how to mix colors for figurative work, how to build confidence, issues regarding social m...

Will St. John is one of my favorite living painters. This is the point at which I list selected biographical information that I find on the guest’s “About” page, but Will doesn’t have an "About" page. He doesn’t even have a website as far as I’ve been able to discern. I reached out to Will to ask him how he’d like to be introduced, and he provided me with the finest bio of all time: “Will St. John is a badass artist. Women desire him; strong men want to be him. The world’s elite cultural inst...
This is my favorite episode to date! I speak with Alex Castilla, an incredibly accomplished experimental physicist, a student of painting, and one of my Patreon supporters. This episode is a mentorship session I had with Alex: he asked me brilliantly incisive questions about painting and I did my best to cover them in the most in-depth way possible. Alex requested that we make this mentorship session public so that everyone may benefit from it, so you should be thankful to him for the release...

If you’re a student of the craft, you’re going to love this one.
