Interview with

Teebs

Teebs is a producer, a painter, and contributing member of the noted LA based Brainfeeder record label. Following the release of his much anticipated sophomore album Estara, Teebs began to redirect his creative focus into completing the body of work that would later be exhibited as “Overgrown”. His painting practice bares much relation to his music production: collaging, overlapping, and mixing imagery with painted gesture to create meditative and minimalist visual soundscapes. The work emanates a sense of organic appeal with feelings of warmth and movement similar to that of his music.
