The first image linking to this post, “the party of the Orange and Brown couch”- our last evening of discussions.
Once again, I had the privilege of meeting an artist doing a one month residency at Medalta. Jody Baral is anything but unproductive. Hailing from Los Angeles, California, with one month of work ahead of him, Jody started working at 100% efficiency. Driving and getting to Medalata was a first impression , showing his persistence and drive to work in art. Once again an artist came into the studio with energy, purpose and infectious positivity. It is something to meet a charismatic individual and someone with a strictly honest personality he was never afraid to give you his honest opinion, in such a way that helped, not hinder. And who can forget the beret he wears, a constant reminder of his nature.
