From the series ‘Devalued by Gold’. Devalued Michael Jordan Card No. 1

It’s Wednesday again, listeners. For you today, I have Benjamin Cook. Ben is an U of L graduate whose focus was originally painting, but set out to broadens his ideas of art. Themes Ben explores are current events, technology, nostalgia, and the way artwork is consumed. Much of his work is a direct respond to the constantly changing times we live in, where input is coming at you from all sides, all the time.

You can learn more about Benjamin at benjamincookart.com. Of course, you can also listen to the interview either through the player below or by subscribing to the podcast.

Thanks, and enjoy!

A little teaser before Wednesday..

This week’s creator is Benjamin Cook. Ben graduated with a degree in painting from the University of Louisville, but has expanded his horizons due to feelings of limitation with the traditional form of paint/canvas work. He works through his love/hate relationship with technology and the changing climate of how art is consumed, in interesting way.

Be sure to listen in on Wednesday, to get a clearer idea about this new and innovated artist.
