I had a great conversation with artist David Eichenberg in his hometown of Toledo, Ohio. David paints highly detailed figurative paintings that are loaded with symbolism. He is courageous in his choice of subject matter, considered in his approach to painting and humble about his achievements, which are significant. He has won numerous high level prizes and his work is sold internationally. He shares many great insights about his painting techniques and the art business.
We talk about bootlegging, latex, elevators, tattoos and art, lots of art and painting . . .
Here are some of the subjects we visit:
- Creative heroes,
