My first artist podcast! In this episode, I talk to Ojan Rezaei about art, Concept vs Fine art, Social justice warriors, nepotism, motivation, and a few crazy stories. We really do talk about a whole range of things, just look at the timestamps below. Also, be sure to follow our social media links below the timestamps:).

Yes, I’m aware I did very little painting and a lot of talking in the video XD. I started the painting that day on a 6-hour stream, then when the interview happened I streamed for another 3 hours and didn’t have enough in the tank to talk and paint to a high degree. I hope you liked the chat in this artist podcast though XD
