Join us in an exploration of the diverse movements, artists, approaches, and mediums that have shaped the "state of art" as we know it today. Each month we select a theme and dive into its role in the arts and how diverse factions of the art world have addressed and/or been influenced by the topic of choice.
In this episode, Ethan talks to Matty Mo, AKA The Most Famous Artist. If you spend any time at all on social media, you’ve probably seen one of his many creations. He’s done the ‘most instagrammable wall’, launched the ‘Museum of Fake Art’ and went viral for a project that involved him dragging a clear duffel bag filled with a million dollars of cash through an art fair.
Ethan and Matty talk about how he became The Most Famous Artist, what it means for tech to ‘democratize’ the art world, and the ways in which social media has changed what it means to be an artist.
