Studio Visit: Chris Way
Waaayyy, way back in, oh, 2007? (I think it was) my friend Liz and I just happened to end up sitting beside Mr. Chris Way at a Joan as Policewoman show at Bowery Ballroom.
We ended up chatting in between sets, found out we just lived several blocks apart, and now, 5 years later remain to be good friends.
Chris is an unremitting force of creativity, crafting gems of poetry, music and painting at what seems to be an incessant pace.
Recently he stopped by my studio to sit for a portrait and catch up on recent happenings. There are many!
Most recently, Mr. Way had 5 of his paintings featured in the Spring 2013 issue of Cambridge-based online arts & literary journal Printer's Devil Review.
For his other endeavors, check the following links.
I highly recommend checking out his albums on itunes as well.
"Body Begins" a 60 minute set of seven meditative, minimalistic works for classical guitar and occasional synth can be found at his Bandcamp site here.
My copies of his albums are on constant rotation and I quite often wake up with his songs in my head. I especially love "Macy's Girls" on "Some Songs, Volume One"
lease check out Mr. Way's creative projects and if they inspire you like they do me, pass them on to friends!
Do you have stories of how you originally met special people in your life?
Drop me a line or share below.
Thanks for tuning in!
