Episode details

When he was seven years old, Robness loved watching MTV, listening to Nirvana and Billy Idol, and naturally, wanted to become a rock star.

Today, he is a visual artist and the godfather of Trash Art.

So yes, in a way, he did become a rock star.

We had a truly great time talking about how music inspires his work, his Vaporwave movie script (yep, he wrote one), the lessons he learned from his days in Rare Pepe, and why he uses all caps everywhere.

We also discussed how we’re both undercover introverts, Robness’ high school days, the spiritual energy in his work, and more.
