067. Mike Tyson and Grandma Paintings: A Conversation with Chino Amobi

While 2020 was not the year any of us planned to have, we have finally found ourselves in a 2021 with a hopefulness that things will turn around. A new year is a time for many of us to make resolutions and start new habits, and, as we enter into the New Year season, it is always good to sit down with old friends and catch up.

This week, Ryan and Garreth do just that as they sit down with painter, musician, designer, and multidisciplinary artist Chino Amobi to talk about the reality of life post-2020. As it tends to be during good conversations with good friends, there is plenty of satellite brain debris. Join us for a conversation about aging, boxing and how 2020 continues to teach us important lessons about what really matters in life.

Help Ken Gilbertson and Hatchback Gallery!
Our good friend Ken is trying to update Hatchback Gallery to better serve his new city and its art lovers. While he won’t let anyone touch the outside of the gallery, he does want to get a few new parts and build some new walls. We are helping Ken launch a GoFundMe; even a few bucks can be a big help!
