Let’s Paint TV
Live @ The Smell (April 6, 2012)

L.A.-based Let’s Paint TV began as a public access television series, but when the city shut down its studios, host John Kilduff took to YouTube to broadcast his oil-painting instruction and life inspiration show. Kilduff also has a live show that’s mobile, which is funny because he performs while on a device for stationary walking called a treadmill. In this recent clip of Let’s Paint TV performing at Downtown L.A.’s The Smell, the combination of nude figure painting, utilitarian smoothie making, and stationary exercise is not only educational, but near-transcendent. Also, you can see the back of my head at one point, which is a plus.

If you want more, and you know you do, check out Let’s Paint TV’s website and YouTube channel to watch live performances and studio shows. If that’s still not enough, you can hire John Kilduff himself (along with his treadmill and canvass) for one unforgettable art lesson.
