The Art Grind Podcast—founded, directed, and produced by Tun Myaing—is a New York City-based podcast for and about artists, art lovers, and art professionals. With the intention of being a social practice of giving back to the art community, the show is hosted by award-winning artist Marshall Jones: painter, teacher, and curator whose work has been displayed in numerous galleries across the US. Marshall and a current artist co-host provide an inside glimpse into the stories and struggles of some of New York City’s top contemporary artists and gallerists. Art Grind Podcast gives listeners a true “behind the scenes” take on the NYC Art scene. Now in its third season with 38 episodes lovingly and carefully recorded and produced, the show’s producers, host, and talented guests believe that the artist-to-artist conversations that take place have the capacity to redirect, and refine, everyone’s purpose as creators and as humans. Episodes explore the process, content, concept, and motivation behind art making by established and emerging artists, and the people who bring that art to a wider audience.
The producer, hosts, and guest artists wear many hats, including curation, art writing, and art teaching, and they share a passion for authentic and skilled art making, be it trained or self-taught. Whether in the studio, on your lunch hour, or chilling out after a long day of hustle, have a listen and explore the backstories of what this community fondly calls “the art grind.”
