I have to admit that social media is pretty cool. Recently I received a LinkedIn invitation from Boston artist Seth Minkin. I knew that I had heard that name before and sure enough, he had been profiled on CBS Sunday Morning and I remember seeing that particular episode. Anyway, after some back-and-forth email, Seth agreed to have me do his portrait at his studio which I plan on using in one of my upcoming exhibits. Well, Seth’s studio is rather unique – it’s in the middle of a word-of-mouth marketing company called BzzAgent.
I arrive at the agency and sure enough, Seth’s “studio” is in a big, open area nestled between offices and cubes–so that everyone at the firm walks by him as he paints. Different, huh?
Also different was how Seth and I were connected. It turns out he is good friends with my cousins in Hull, MA and had heard about me through my uncle Walter.
Seth’s work is colorful, unique and quite impressive and I photographed him as he was working on a piece for his upcoming show at the Liberty Hotel on Tuesday, May 18th at 6pm. Check it out.
