Concluding The NXT LEVEL Podcast is artist QimmyShimmy, who is known for her controversial sculptural works. Combining 'cute' and 'disgusting', her pieces would, on first impressions, depict various realistic food items such as dumplings, though a second glance would reveal dismembered baby heads tucked neatly into their folds, an example of her works that have gained her both fans and critics alike. Come along as we pick her brains on maintaining a community, cultivating a signature style, and her personal take on why get artist's block.  Get your creative juices flowing with our sixth and final episode of The NXT LEVEL Podcast.
