#7: John Wentz " Beating The Algorithm"
Release Date: 02/20/2018
In episode 7, we waste no time talking (light) trash about the Academy of Art before we delve into John Wentz’s beginnings. We talk about what comic book characters suck, shedding the art-school mentality, the art inherent in all disciplines, his upcoming trip to Paris, and the impact of social media on professional artists. We get into why he paints “unfinished” portraits and what cave paintings have to do with them. We discuss one of his paintings he created from riding the NYC subways which leads to a discussion about human empathy, his titles, and process vs. outcome. We shout out his lady Delphyne, then go into a tangent about beliefs, and Sergio gets compared to Sam Harris. We answer a couple of questions at the end, and then tell you to fuck off. Sorry for the audio quality.
