Postwook - Training like an athlete as an artist, beating addiction, and dealing with ebbs and flows of being a full time creative.

We Do A Little

Mar 4 2024 • 2 hrs 34 mins

In this week’s episode, we sit down with Natasha Chomko aka Postwook. Postwook is a Los Angeles based digital artist focused on cooking up some of the most visually pleasing and nostalgia provoking surreal landscape collage art.

We dive into Postwook’s origin story, training like an athlete as an artist, diversifying income streams, beating addiction, dealing with the ebbs and flows of being a full time artist in a volatile space, and so much more.

Season Four is officially powered by Arbitrum and our content will be redistributed across Rug Radio and Decrypt’s platforms.

Andy and I have been massive fans of Arbitrum since they launched, and both of us invested in Offchain Labs Series B back in 2021. This is a full circle moment for us and we couldn’t be happier to partner with Arbitrum for this season.
