The future Mike Tyson of art?

 

Nathan sits down with Asheville folk artist/outsider artist Gabriel Shaffer for the 30th episode of the Finding Asheville podcast. They chat about growing up in Parkersburg, WV, how a vision of Gabriel’s grandfather inspired him to write, traveling in bands, how painting saved his life, why Gabriel trains to paint like a boxer would train for a fight, and what may be next for Asheville’s most self critical artist.

This episode was recorded at Mojo Coworking at 60 North Market Street in Downtown Asheville.
