In this podcast, we strive to fulfill 621 Gallery’s official mission, which is to: expose people to the creative process, to platform significant conversations around our diverse communities, and to support artists’ careers.
In this interview with Elton, we discuss the importance of representation in the arts, his comic series Hallelujah, and his show titled Blacklist, which 621 hosted back in May of 2019. We also dive into specific pieces of Elton’s work, all of which you can view on his website at eltonaburgest.com. You can also follow Elton on instagram @eltonburgest.
This episode will also be available on 621 Gallery’s youtube channel. There you can follow along with visual components as you listen to our conversation.
