Episode 18 – Jeremy Biggers


Stem and Thorn Founder

Jeremy Biggers was introduced to me by a friend and I fell in love with his art upon sight. He’s an incredibly talented, prolific artist from Dallas, Tx. Seriously. His art will make you drop your jaw, say ‘whoa!’, or just stare in amazement.

I was floored by his skill, creativity and loved that he uses art to make social/political statements. His art spans politics and racial injustice to funky celebrity pop-art sprinkled with superheroes and cartoons. Sometimes people mistake his art for real life and can’t believe that his paintings are on a piece of wood or canvas. In short, Jeremy has a gift. Oh…and did I mention his wife, Sam Lao, is a rapper? Check out her stuff on Spotify. Now that we all feel inadequate, let’s dig into the conversation.

Things we discussed:

  • Best comedies of all time
  • Our favorite movies
  • Soundtracks
  • Black Panther
  • Losing our mothers
  • Gentrification
  • Politics
  • Rick and Morty

This 2+ hour conversation was so fun and Jeremy is so interesting. I am truly grateful and humbled by Jeremy. Especially after talking about experiences losing our parents.  Losing a parent is tough, especially before you’ve gotten married and had kids.  The feeling of them never seeing your progress in life can be awful, but remembering them can be beautiful.

Jeremy opened up about so much and I want to thank him for that.  Check him out on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and his website (stemandthorn.com)Support his art, because he does such a beautiful job of representing this city and his art needs to get out to the rest of the world!
