VIDEO: Diggin’…The art of Brian Woida
Humboldt County artist Brian Woida has done it all. He’s a DJ, painter, sculpture, record collector, rockin’ guitarist in bands such as The Ravens, and the best damn barista in town. His latest art show, Diggin’…Can You Collect Them All? sets out to show the interconnectedness of music, as well as all the mediums he frequents, through collage.
