EP 158 : DETOUR
"Always trying to learn something new to figure out how to create something different"
Much like a human Swiss Army knife, Denver based artist Detour has a tool or a solution for any situation… and if he doesn’t, then he’s damn sure going to find one or even better, simply invent one himself. Growing up in a military family and bouncing around from city to city, country to country every few years, one learns from an early age how to adapt to new and unfamiliar situations. Detour took this aspect of his childhood and turned it into his super power, using his interest in sports and then breakdancing and eventually art making as a means to find his place in every new community. As his focus concentrated in on fine art his thirst for experimentation and discovery only grew. As a professional artists Detour glides effortlessly between painting murals, designing and building sculptural work, developing full immersion art installations, and even conceptualising and inventing new experimental art tools and methods. Through his highly popular YouTube channel, and powerful social media presence, Detour continues to share his wealth of knowledge with other artists around the world, further utilising his skills and interests to grow his community.
