Shea Little - EAST and the new Creative Standard

About This Episode

If you have been in Austin long and are into art you have probably heard of the East Austin Studio Tour or Big Medium. One person at the center of both from the beginning has been Shea Little. With EAST 2017 coming up it made sense to sit down with Shea and find out how it all started, how he got involved in art, and what the future might look like.

Some of the subjects we discuss:

  • How does Big Medium support artists
  • E.A.S.T, W.E.S.T. differences
  • Texas Biennial explanation and history
  • Beginnings in art and school
  • Having a job and making art
  • Sodailtas collaboration
  • Evolution of his art style
  • History of E.A.S.T. and Big Medium
  • Talking about and pricing your art
  • Generous Art/Creative Standard
  • EAST present and future
