I had artist Mark Bowles on the podcast today via zoom.
One interesting component of doing this podcast is that I never really know what I'm going to learn about my guests. That's one of the reasons I like doing them so much. You know, the discovery aspect of it all.
In this episode, Mark and I went down some of the deeper, darker holes of life. Things like how the way a parent treats you can effect your life tremendously. In this case, we learn that Mark had a very tough father.
Sometimes it's hard to go there (especially publicly) and sometimes you don't want to share those kinds of things, but when you do, it really gives those who know you perspective. They get a sense of what makes you who you are as a person and when you're an artist, it shows people how those experiences inform your creativity.
And so Mark was really straightforward in sharing these details of his life. What he's had to overcome while maintaining such a unique and successful painting career. He's a really great artist and I've always loved his stuff which is evident in the fact I've represented him for almost 20 years.
Enjoy. Mark Bowles on Art Dealer Diaries Podcast episode 174.
