Philly Joe Swendoza: Chanter of Personality ArtRocks! Internet radio

Son of the conqueror, the convict and the Cherokee, Philip was born on an island, under a mushroom, in a time of war. Swedish from the hips on up, Australian from the hips on down, aborigine to his soles. His father fought in three wars so he could oppose all wars. His mother smoked, drank, and gambled to a better place, hanging from a one-armed bandit. The family endured, following the big ships down to the sea and the big wars until they were won. Educated beyond his ambition, he turned late to art, fashion and music. Ten years in the show biz game in New York City during the go-go 80's fed his libido and his yearning for fame and fortune. The sweet smell of success came in small bottles with big price tags. When the money ran out, he ran west to border town aka San Diego. Philly Joe Swendoza is the creator and host of Art Rocks!Radio, 'Where Art, Fashion & Music Collide', a weekly internet radio show that interviews the makers & shakers in art, fashion & music.

Question #2 What is your vision of the future of the Visual arts for San Diego?

#2 "Teach artists to become more entrepreneurial by practicing what we call 'artrepreneurship.' Artists need to embrace the concept of art as commodity based on shameless self-promotion & willingness to monetize their celebrity."
