Episode 004: Art Dolls and the Art of Drag {Vinsantos DeFonte}

Vinsantos DeFonte is a drag performance artist, musician, assemblage art doll creator, and art gallery owner based in New Orleans. We talked about the New Orleans Drag Workshop and why kindness is at the heart of making a living as a creative.


If you've listened to Episode 001, you've already heard me talk about today's guest, Vinsantos DeFonte.

We met while selling our handmade artwork at Frenchmen Art Market in New Orleans. In 2014, I enrolled in Cycle 2 of the New Orleans Drag Workshop, where Vinsantos teaches people from all walks of life the art of drag performance.

This episode was recorded in Vinsantos’ studio and gallery, Tresor Gallery, at 811 Royal Street in the French Quarter.
