We had the good fortune of connecting with Foster and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Foster, we’d love to hear what makes you happy.
Throwing things. It’s fun to watch it fly through the air and crash wherever it lands.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
It’s been mostly easy because all of my art is very expressionist and doesn’t rely on having to be able to draw or paint something incredibly realistic. Sometimes though it can be hard to find the emotions or think of a new idea. A good way to get out of a rut is to remember that it’s not the art that makes you an artist, it’s the fact that you’re making it. So even if you make something and you hate it, it’s not about what it looks like, it’s just good you made something at all. Sometimes it feels hard to make things and it’s good to push through that lull and embrace the art you’re making even if it’s not something you would want to show the rest of the world. As far as what sets me apart from other artists, I don’t feel like it’s for me to say. I don’t think about other artists much besides my close friends including Tukyo. I get competitive when I see other cool art. I am proud of my art.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Pho Hop in Haltom City, Melis Taqueria on Vickery, Cookshack on University, China Express on 8th, Central Market
