This is such a great episode mostly for the painters out there! I loved talking the David Linneweh, a painter who also runs the podcast Studio Break, about his background growing up in suburbia and how that feeds into his paintings, his experience working en plein air and photo transfers, his wonderful advice to artists and what he has learned from running a podcast.
David Linneweh received his MFA in painting at Southern Illinois University Carbondale in 2007 and his BFA from Illinois State University in 2002. His work has been in solo shows including The Peoria Art Guild, Peoria, IL, (2012), The Moberly Area Community College, Moberly, MO, (2012), and Centraltrak, Dallas, TX (2008). His work has been in numerous group exhibitions including McNamee Gallery, Saint Louis University, St. Louis, MO (2013), The Rockford Art Museum, Rockford, IL, (2012), Brooklyn Artists Gym, Brooklyn, NY, (2011), and Manifest Gallery, Cincinnati, OH, (2010). He’s completed artist residencies at Art342, Centraltrak, Osage Arts Community, The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, Vermont Studio Center, and Jentel. His work has been published in New American Paintings four times in (2011,2007, 2005, 2003). He is the creator of the Contemporary Art Podcast Studio Break and is an adjunct professor in the Chicago area.
David has a two-person exhibition at Heartbreaker in Peoria, IL opening in July and will be featured in Studio Visit Magazine this Spring. He was a guest on Phil Mellen's podcast for the Mixed Media Tapes that also features yours truly!
