Artist Interview: Adam Lovitz

Words of the day: immediate. energy. inform. nature. color.

This interview is with Philadelphia painter, Adam Lovitz. We dig in and talk a bit about education and how Lovitz was encouraged to create daily while growing up. Balancing work and painting can be a challenge, listen in as he shares how he has dealt with that issue. Nature also comes up and we talk the importance of it's image in painting. Lovitz also shares his thoughts and practices in color, space and dealing with paintings as objects. Listen below for more!
