Radio Juxtapoz Podcast, ep 9: Christian Rex van Minnen and Aaron Johnson On "In Heaven, Everything Is Fine"
In Episode 9 of the Radio Juxtapoz Podcast, hosts Evan Pricco and Doug Gillen sit down with American painters Christian Rex van Minnen and Aaron Johnson the night after their collective solo show, In Heaven, Everything is Fine, opened at Ross + Kramer Gallery in NYC. Both painters have shared a friendship for years that has blossomed into showing work simultaneously, and at times, collectively.

In this episode, we talk about a new era of painting, what lowbrow has meant over the centuries and internalizing the current political climate and finding a new voice in bh artists' paintings. At the beginning of the episode, Evan (editor of Juxtapoz Magazine) and Doug (founder and director of FifthWallTV) discuss the idea of hero worship and how one can, if possible, separate the art from the artist.
Thank you to Ross + Kramer Gallery for letting us record in their gallery!
