Conversation ft. Jens Peter Brask (#77)

We are happy to say that today we have our first conversation with an art collector on the show, yes sir, the great Jens Peter Brask came by. We have been wanting to talk to collectors for a long time now, because they serve an integral part of any art scene out there. Feel how you may about the idea of selling art, but it’s been a part of art since nearly time immemorial, and we are fascinated with hear what people have to say. We got to talk about how and why he collects work, about his relationships to artists (and other collectors), and about his love of graffiti. We also got to hear a little about his book, Brask Studio Visit, and other projects coming down the pipeline. Join us!

Some images of his collection:
