Terbo Ted

2 Op Collective has their eye on Terbo Ted! Here are some examples of his work:

Q. Tell us about your work?

A. All art exists in the eye of the beholder, so it’s up to everyone to draw their own conclusions from what they’re looking at.  I could explain what’s in my mind with my pieces, but that might have little or no congruity with what someone looking at them would think.  When I make pieces at this point in my life, I try to make them durable and long lasting, something that would exist across many years of time, beyond my lifespan, so I’m playing with what I call ‘Immortality Gratification’.  One story I like to tell is how in Europe last year, a scientific study was released that proved appreciation of art releases chemicals in the brain, dopamine.  So when you look at a piece of artwork, and have a day to day sort of interaction with it, you are undergoing the same kind physiological reactions you would from being in love.

Q. What advice do you have for your peers?

A. Do what you do.  Artists are usually super opinionated and also bombarded with suggestions and commentary, find your own balance in that.  I do love to talk about process, materials, adhesives, whatever with other artists, but those are interactive discussions and not a one way discourse.  I have no advice to give my peers other than basic sort of advice that would work across any lifestyle, for example, the path to success I was taught by a mentor, in four steps, not necessarily in this order: 1.  Don’t take anything personally; 2. Work harder at what it is you do than anyone else; 3. Always do your best; 4. Always keep your word.

Q. Where can we learn more about you and your work?

A. To learn more about me, try a google search, there are many years of residue up there.  Feel free to visit my website, www.terboted.com.  Add me on facebook if you like.  In San Francisco, I have new works for sale and on display on an ongoing basis at Arttitud, 111 Potrero Ave, SF 94103 www.arttitud.com
