21 Podcasts for Visual Artists

From conversations with curators to business tips from artists, to a ballsy irreverence of art history and art news flipped on its head, we take a look at the podcasts inspiring visual artists.

There have been many articles and conversations about how music can impact a visual artist creatively. Kandinsky lived off a diet of Wagner, while Paul Klee had a passion for Bach, and Marc Chagall’s whimsical style came partially from years of creating sets and costumes for Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes. Piet Mondrian’s Broadway Boogie Woogie (1942) and Henri Matisse’s Jazz Suite (1947) make no secret of their influence.

However, today artists can also find inspiration and affirmation in podcasts.
