Tania Ingerson Podcaster/Entrepreneurial Artist

"The Walking Creative (James Smith) is an artist based in Adelaide, South Australia. He is a self taught artist who is well known in the Adelaide community for his vibrant colour palette where his work stems from moments, conversation, thoughts and feelings in an expressive, spontaneous style and yet sometimes a simple bold piece of imagery that fits the empty space of the urban jungle.

He has exhibited works in galleries and shows both locally, interstate and overseas. He has also worked and collaborated with local businesses across Adelaide painting murals, designed logos, produced street wear and custom wear as well as a limited edition clothing line for a sustainable street wear store in Adelaide’s CBD."

In this podcast we discuss

  • Instagram, how this platform created opportunities locally, interstate and overseas
  • Collaborations with businesses and artists
  • The Fringe 
  • Website opportunities
  • Networking and creating opportunities

I really enjoyed this chat with James, there is a really humble, driven and passionate way that James talks about his art. This is also how he approaches opportunities to sell, collaborate and build his arts business so he can continue to what makes him happy. When you see the art that James creates, whether it is street art on buildings, on a canvas, even on a coke bottle, clothing etc you can't help but feel happy.  Maybe its the colours, the images he paints or maybe you can sense the happiness that James gets from doing his art that makes you feel happy.
