Mihai Pavel's journey through photography, literal Instagram peacocking, and the toxic nature of social media | Podcasts | The Fearless Show | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Mihai Pavel’s journey through photography, literal Instagram peacocking, and the toxic nature of social media

On this week's show we have special guest Miha Pavel (@familiarspot), from the Sacramento area, on to talk about his journey through photography over the years, his Romanian roots and its influence on his music, as well as his thoughts on the role of social media and emerging technologies, i.e. smart phones, in the field of photography as a whole. And of course we go on tangents about conspiracy theories, not being able to compete with Dexter the Peacock, the toxicity of online comments, and get an answer to the age old question - Signs or The Village?...

What Do You See?: What the Loss of NEA Funding May Mean for Access to the Arts

Today, the National Endowment for the Arts is constantly being put on the chopping block when it comes to federal funding but it's not just about the artists. It’s about those that benefit from funding to the arts. If admission prices rise, that accessibility will become more and more difficult to justify financially and less people will be able to view the great works of artists past and present....

Artists have always faced an uphill battle, but new obstacles are being thrown in their way. Emerging technologies have been both a gift and a curse. Over the past decade, artists have grappled with historic levels of economic uncertainty and discord and federal funding for the arts is under attack. In the end, if we’re going to ensure that the arts we love thrive, we’re going to have to do it ourselves....
Cautious optimism for Black Panther, untraining your creative mind, and the themes of body perception and mental conditioning in Marvin Touré's art work | Podcasts | The Fearless Show | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Cautious optimism for Black Panther, untraining your creative mind, and the themes of Marvin Touré’s art work

Shit gets real in this episode as we speak to Marvin Touré about his upcoming art work, the influences of his West African heritage and being a first-generation immigrant, and his cautious optimism about Marvel's upcoming Black Panther film. We also dive deep into an artist's struggle to convey his own life and perspective while still leaving room for interpretation from a larger audience, untraining your mind after years of traditional schooling, the themes of the racial undertones of body perception, mental conditioning, and the mentality towards art in West Africa compared to the traditional Western context. Needless to say we dive deep....
Music Pairing: Classic Art and Contemporary Music | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Music Pairing: Classic Art and Contemporary Music

The extent to which aspects of both classic art and contemporary music took on different meanings when paired together amazed me. The withdrawn looks of the subjects became coy and knowing when I wondered what secrets they would reveal “if these walls could talk”, Haim’s defiant anthem of “baby, don’t save me” became the voice of women in French high society, and Nina Simone’s simple lament felt inspired by the Avenue de Chantilly. Where the more traditional music pairings became incidental, the contemporary pieces were in dialogue with the paintings, both resisting and conforming to the tone suggested by the music....

BoJack Horseman Season 4 Proves to Be Netflix’s Most Artistic Original Yet

Netflix’s original animated-series is a staple of artistic innovation.

Season four brings perhaps the most creatively stylized animation to modern television, while also incorporating design choices into their narratives. This critique is spoiler-packed, so please proceed with caution! ...

Hugh Hefner’s legacy, IT & Rick and Morty breaking records, and made-for-Instagram art exhibits

For this week's show we talk about the recent passing of Hugh Hefner and discuss our thoughts on his legacy and the discussion the media is having about it; whether it was more exploitation or liberation.

We end things by discussing the recent trend of "Made-for-Instagram" art exhibits and Google's new hardware lineup and their new flagship phone, the Pixel 2....
Music to look at paintings by: Matisse, Mondrian and Thelonious Monk | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Music to look at art by: Matisse, Mondrian and Thelonious Monk

What impact could a curated playlist of music have on the way viewers perceive an art exhibition? Whether intended to provide historical or artistic context, or as an abstract statement on the cross-genre interaction between visual and aural art, music could be the key to unlocking a more visceral, multi-sensory approach to art viewing and creation. The increasing use of various digital media already hints at a radically new way of exploring museums and galleries....

How the Tiny Home Movement Represents Millennial Culture (And Why This May Not Be a Good Thing)

The housing market is shrinking, and not just in an economic sense, but in the actual dimensions of homes which are being downsized to 200 square feet or less. Architectural focus has shifted from creating tiny dream homes to extremely minimal and functional designs to reflect the financial situation of millennials. Are homes truly shrinking for aesthetic, or do they match shrinking job opportunities and paychecks?...
