Phoenix Artist Daniel Funkhouser on Science Fiction Addiction and How Play Shapes His Work

What happens in the studio, shouldn't always stay in the studio. Studio Visit Q+A is a new weekly series that profiles artists in their studios. We ask them questions, they provide answers, and then we have a nice discussion about their work. This week: Phoenix artist Daniel Funkhouser.

Arizona local Daniel Funkhouser's work has been a staple in Phoenix's art scene for the past several years. The ASU-trained painter is a former member of Eye Lounge and when he isn't producing his pop assemblages, he works for Scottsdale Public Art. His solo exhibition last fall at Bokeh Gallery was one of our 10 must-sees, so we sat down with him in his studio to talk about his work and what could be coming next.
