Who ARTed


Who Arted is art history and art education for everyone. While most art history podcasts focus on the traditional “fine art” we see in museums around the world, Who ARTed celebrates art in all of its forms and in terms anyone can understand. Each episode tells the story of a different artist and artwork including the traditional big names like Leonardo da Vinci, Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol along with lesser-known artists working in such diverse media as video game design, dance, the culinary arts, and more. Who Arted is written and produced by an art teacher with the goal of creating a classroom resource that makes art history fun and accessible to everyone. Whether you are cramming for your AP Art History exam, trying to learn a few facts so you can sound smart at fashionable dinner parties, or just looking to hear something with a more positive tone, we’ve got you covered with episodes every Monday and Friday. Today’s fan pick episode is about Ivan Albright. Ivan Albright is considered to be a great macabre painter. He is known for his portraits and still lives that have a sense of rot showing the frailty of life. His style is considered magical realism. He meticulously rendered portraits that were unlike anything else in his day. In this episode, we discussed the painting he created for the film adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s Picture of Dorian Gray. The Picture of Dorian Gray is housed at The Art Institute of Chicago Who ARTed is an Airwave Media Podcast.
