I Like to Paint MONSTERS! Chet Zar Interviewed by Keith Ciaramello
I love the opportunity to bring interviews to you from artists I admire how exist outside of the tattoo community. I’m not sure that statement totally applies in this case, considering the Chet Zar has made a second home in the tattoo community. Chet started very young in his pursuit of the creation of “all things creepy”. His movie magic career culminated in a position at Rick Baker Studios. After becoming disenchanted with the nature of Hollywood projects, Chet made a decision to bring his creepy creativity to the fine art world.
Affectionately known as a “painter of monsters”, he couldn’t have been less monstrous during our interview. Getting to know Chet during this conversation reinforced my belief that he is truly a warm, compassionate, and loving human being. I hope you guys enjoy this interview is as much as I enjoyed speaking with him that day.
Listen to Keith interviewed Durb Morrison, arguably one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the tattoo business. The mind behind the HELL CITY tattoo conventions, and the creator of true grips, true tubes, and Ergo-Squish! He’s also a successful publisher in print and digital media. Get ready to feel lazy!
