Cue Perry, artist and entrepreneur, visits with the Drinking Partners in the latest podcast release. As an artist who wants his work to “speak to the wild, creative, open minds who dare to express themselves,” CB Perry is known for pushing boundaries, from body painting to deconstructing pop culture with a humorous touch. In the early minutes, he talks about how to move from artist to businessman and how to monetize your passion, which he has done successfully as a full-time artist for the last year by focusing on peer-to-peer mentoring, marketing and sales, pricing, and time management. Aside from his business approach, Cue also shares his artistic approach, which Ed and Day take in their own strange (and NSFW) direction. You’ll be left shaking your head after that body-centric conversation. Ed and day settle down to discuss other artsy things, such as when Cue knows a piece of his work is finished and how he values them. Listeners might enjoy his explanation of how his work is interpreted and what control he has over that process. Cue Perry will be featured as the Artist-in-Residence for the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Urban Education on January 30 from 6 – 7:30pm at Posvar Hall, where he will display his work and talk about his yearlong “Witnessing” theme.
