Video: Jeremy Fish Lecture at SFAI- May 2, 2012

SFAI alumnus and local artist Jeremy Fish returned to Chestnut Street to celebrate the end of the 2011-2012 academic year and discuss the development of his career as a painter and illustrator. In the 40 minute video Jeremy discusses how he got into illustration, the influence of skateboarding and his ongoing relationship with the industry, his time studying and working at SFAI, the relationships he developed early on in SF’s gallery scene, the city’s rich history, the stories behind some of his works, his collaborations with Indonesian wood carver Nyoman Sedayatana, an amazing story about Mike Giant and much more. I’ve met Jeremy several times and he’s a super sweet and interesting cat to talk to, the lecture is well worth your time so grab a drink, kick back and do your self a favor and watch the whole thing. Presented by The History and Theory of Contemporary Art Department.
