[Podcast] Earbud_U, Season Three, Episode #3 – Gianna Putrino, Fine Artist, Emerging Artist, Energetic Advocate of the Artistic Process
As I’ve said before, I am driven by artists, the art making process, and the connection between getting paid and getting to do what you love.
I go to art shows sometimes. Last summer I attended an art show that featured the art of our guest today, Gianna Putrino. Now, Gianna is a contemporary artist, which means she draws large scale work. But her work is figurative, not abstract.
Now, I’m not saying that abstract pieces aren’t artwork or artistic, but I am saying that I am tied philosophically to the figurative tradition in the fine arts. I can’t tell you the struggles that I had in art school at college.
Well…there are a few people who can.
Gianna is as well, and her drawings led me to immediately going up to her, and asking her to come on the show.
And then, life happened for both of us…
She’ll tell you her entire story and lay out her compelling artistic journey, but suffice it to say, the world has opened up in many ways for this talented young woman and, much like Emperor Palpatine in the Phantom Menace (which, in light of Star Wars VII no one even THINKS about anymore—thanks J.J. Abrams), I look forward to seeing all that she will produce in the upcoming years.
So, let’s all go over and become Jedis—or Siths—or whatever and listen to what Gianna has to say…
