In this episode, Alicia interviews Andy Firth, a self-taught Australian artist known for his signature canvas: the human skull. Since 2013, he has remained widely anonymous under the title ‘Jack of The Dust’. Until now. With international demand at an all-time high and a combined following of 2.5 million, his clientele includes Joe Rogan, Slash, Jason Momoa, Chris Brown and Nikki Tutorials. Each piece is hand-made in Australia by manipulating acrylic, clay and cinema-grade urethane resin imported from the U.S. to resemble skin, steel, stone and bone. Exclusively attainable through 4-6 public releases each year, Firth’s works of art crack through the limits of imagination on adventure. Firth has grown a full-time crew of 15 and operates from two Burleigh Heads warehouses on Australia’s Gold Coast.
