Painter James Temte shows us how he transformed his carport into his outdoor art studio, talks about his creative process + shows us what supplies he uses for his paintings.
Artist + CRUSH Walls founder Robin Munro put Denver’s street art scene on the map and left an indelible mark on the city he loves. Robin started in the graffiti and hip-hop scenes and transitioned into painting murals, running CRUSH, opening a brand-new gallery in RiNo + sculpting. In our conversation, we talk about why he’s passionate about sculpting, what makes a successful street art festival application + how CRUSH can be a great launching pad.
Painter & muralist Pedro Barrios “never intentionally” tried to become an artist. In fact, he actually has degrees in marketing and nursing to prove that he didn’t. Pedro is now working as a full-time artist as 50% of Denver’s The Worst Crew with fellow artist Jaime Molina. In our conversation, we talk about finding work through developers, understanding client needs and why they stopped signing their work.
Painter Dawn Gerety gives us a tour of her workspace that’s a custom-built shed adjacent to her Alaskan home.
Alaskan Filmmaker Ben Sturgulewski draws his inspiration from his love of the outdoors, so it’s no surprise that after spending some time in the lower 48, he took a risk and moved back to a tiny Alaskan town. The risk paid off and he’s been able to both stay busy with work and create a life that suits him well. In our conversation, we talk about why collaboration is key, how relinquishing control can reduce stress + why you should follow your own path.
Flip McCririck is a photography veteran, working for various publications, big brands (like Nike, Red Bull, Target) and some of the most well-known skiers of our generation. The industry has no doubt shifted since he got into the game some decades ago, but much of his advice has no expiration. In our conversation, we talk about how to pivot into another industry, how to target ideal clients + how to make yourself more marketable to commercial clients.
