Artist On Artist is Glasstire’s video and audio podcast series in which Glasstire’s News Editor Christopher Blay, also an artist, hosts Texas-based artists and art professionals in one-on-one conversations.

This week Christopher Blay’s conversation is with Houston-based artist Phillip Pyle II. Blay and Pyle converged at the Eldorado Ballroom in Houston’s Third Ward to talk gentrification, multi-million dollar parks, and Pyle’s well-known collaborative projects with other Houston artists.

“A lot of the artists [here],  you grow up with them in the neighborhood, you just go from playing video games together to writing grants together. That’s the path: playing outside, playing video games, grants.”
