Jerkface – Chaos from the Ladder

A Conversation with Jerkface

Jerkface

 
Recorded live from an undisclosed location in New York, today’s guest on the show is Jerkface. I would give you an intro to his work and accomplishments but you’re better off just visiting his instagram, search for incarceratedjerkfaces or just jerkface and just scroll through his paintings/murals while you listen.

In this episode Jerkface talks about his excitement for creation, painting, work ethic, cubism, the street life, murals, style, incarceration and the School of Visual Arts.

I really enjoyed this talk. I would love to hear your thoughts. Leave a comment on the Apple Podcast app and don’t forget to rate the show.

Just a heads this episode has some strong language that may not be suitable for children. You been warned, enjoy the show.
