In our second episode of Season 3, we are joined by the awe-inspiring and inimitable Jake Fried. Jake is an artist who uses ink and white-out to create insane animations. His work has been auctioned at Christies, exhibited at the Tate Modern and many more galleries around the world. In his spare time, Jake is also a professor at Massachusetts college of Art and Design and the Museum of Fine arts in Boston.
We dive into Jake’s background and artistic journey from how he developed his incredibly unique style and process to becoming an art professor in Boston. We also touch on how psychedelics impacted not only his art but his life in general.
