Listen – Clever Podcast Ep. 110: Artist Misha Kahn

On the latest episode of Clever podcast, Amy Devers talks to artist and designer Misha Kahn who grew up hustling his lakeshore Minnesotan neighbors with tin foil wrapped baked goods, sewing clothes, and hanging with exchange student stragglers. A year of guzzling weird culture in Brussels set him on a path to study furniture design in school. Now, at the young age of 30, his career has snowballed and earned him a reputation in the art world as an exciting and provocative force working at the intersection of furniture and sculpture. Sewing and tin foil still included. Listen:
