What does it cost to do an art show in Madison, Wisconsin? For gunpowder artist Stick Vega it's nearly $25,000 when you add up all the numbers like framing, freight, fuses, and beer.
"Everything I do centers around explosive art and explosive transparency. I love to talk about and show every aspect of how I produce my work." said Stick Vega. Showcasing his work, philosophy, and process is done on a regular basis on the Stick Vega website and blog.
