494 - Tube 12: Jason Edmiston
December is upon us and over at Adventures In Design that could only mean one thing… the 12 Tubes Of Christmas are here! We kick off our countdown of deals with a heavyweight in the world of contemporary art, Jason Edmiston. This year spans the gamut of successful projects for Jason from an art show at the Mondo Gallery to publishing his first art book, Visceral. After 2015 proved to be his breakout year, our Canadian Contender turned inward to create work that expands his public visibility and artistic credibility and joins Mark to share what he’s learned. Balancing the workload associated with personal achievements and profitability can be a tricky one even when you’re spreading it across three hundred and sixty five days but if anyone can do it, Jason can, and with a plan. It’s no accident Jason has an immense and impressive body of work and hearing his insight and intent behind his actions in a valuable tool for artists at any level in their career about what to do and where to go next.
