Artist and Composer Mark Kostabi was born in Los Angeles in 1960 to Estonian immigrants. Raised in Whittier, California, he studied drawing and painting at California State University, Fullerton. Kostabi moved to New York in 1982, and by 1984, emerged as a leading figure in the East Village art scene where he cultivated a provocative media persona by publishing self-interviews reflecting on the commodification of contemporary art. By 1987, his work was widely exhibited in New York galleries as well as prominently throughout the United States, Japan, Germany and Australia. He inspired extensive international press coverage in 1988 when he founded Kostabi World, his Manhattan art studio, which employs numerous painting assistants and idea people. Beginning in the early 1990s Kostabi's work has been widely exhibited throughout Italy. Kostabi established a second home in Rome in 1996. Dividing his time between Rome and New York enabled him to dramatically enhance his presence in the Italian art scene.
Kostabi has designed album covers for Guns 'N' Roses (Use Your Illusion) and The Ramones (Adios Amigos), Jimmy Scott (Holding Back The Years), Seether (Holding Onto strings Better Left to Fray) and numerous products including a Swatch watch, a Bloomingdales bag, Alessi vases, Rosenthal espresso cups, and a Giro d'Italia pink jersey. Kostabi is the subject of numerous documentary films.Kostabi has been profiled on 60 Minutes, Eye to Eye with Connie Chung, A Current Affair, Nightwatch , The Oprah Winfrey Show, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, Nonsolomoda, West 57th, CNN, MTV and numerous television programs throughout Europe and Japan.His permanent public works include a mural in Palazzo dei Priori in Arezzo, Italy, a large bronze sculpture in the central square of San Benedetto del Tronto, Italy, and a bronze portrait of Pope John Paul II in Velletri, Italy. http://mkostabi.com

What is Media? What is Media Literacy? What is Media Education?
We began broadcasting in 2009 with Frank Baker as our first guest. Frank Baker, I call my mentor. He is a well-know and renowned media literacy educator. He influenced me and caused me to want to learn and to teach everyone about the influences of media messages that surround them every day. On our first show, Frank talked with me and shared What is Media, What is Media Literacy and Media Education. The show is about learning how to interpret, analyze, understand, and create media messages that surround us all every day.
Today’s show we are going to replay that episode and next week’s episode we will be part of the 1st Annual United States Media Literacy Week.

Join host Michael Harris with guest artist Robin Botie as they discuss her inspiration and technique for her unique Photo shop images. Robin Botie’s life as she knew was catapulted out the window when cancer killed her daughter. Desperate to keep visible memories of her, and needing to reinvent herself, she discovered photography and writing as ways to heal. Robin believes anything’s possible – even finding joy after loss. She creates pictures and writes about growing in the midst of grief and ever since Robin dove into Photoshop, she’s been losing herself and finding herself in her work. “My pictures are mostly of living things and landscapes. They are all about regaining life and redefining it. Photoshop offers intriguing “Tools” to work with for those whose lives are in turmoil or struck by loss. There is a Patch Tool and a Path Selection Tool, a Dodge Tool and an Add-Anchor Tool, a Magic Eraser, a Magic Wand, a Clone Stamp, … and a Healing Brush. The possibilities for change and control are endless. I always believed I could design my way into or out of anything; for me, to design is to fix, to redefine, and make beautiful.”
