Dance With Alcohol Ink

An audio magazine exploring creative culture and rooting into purpose even when we’re out on a limb.

In Conversation with Bryant Small

Bryant Small is on the first two episodes of the series. We talk about alcohol ink (it’s very unruly), growing up an artist in Washington D.C., and running art like a business. We visited him in his studio. There’s music in the background and an occasional bump in the mix, but it’s all good vibes.

Being in a room with him is invigorating. His energy is exuberant. The conversation bubbles with a side-splitting cackle. And while he’s aware of this gift to pull people in (he calls it razzle-dazzle), the man wears it like a blessing. And to top it off, his paintings are a lavish feast for the eyes.

“Being the youngest person at the table, sometimes the only black person, taught me that you got to be smarter, faster, hungrier, louder. Or sometimes move in silence. Because when you talk about what you’re doing, somebody could cut off your path.”

— Bryant Small
