The basis for that knowledge is in knowing how to value interactions, he says. Every one, to him, is an opportunity to share—whether that’s on his practically top secret radio show on the artist-driven LA network KCHUNG, or with the interns and younger artists he comes across.
“Working with young people, for me, is dynamic and fabulous,” he says. “Because they are paying attention to things I’m not and I’m hoping I can share with them in my ‘elderly way’, haha, things that escaped their attention or their education.”
He doesn’t have a “sell-by” date, because his work and passion are inextricably linked. “Work keeps you going,” he says. “I think very often people in the art world can work very late into their lives and still be very capable … and I hope to be one of those.”
