508. – Simon de Pury

Simon de Pury is an art auctioneer, dealer, and five other art things and a DJ. We chat about shabu shabu, are we going to kiss, matcha = paella, baby shopping, in an ever-changing world, it’s nice to have things that never change, Simon tells the story of the one time in his life that he wore a t-shirt, how he became a DJ in his sixties, why he loves long flights, could Simon sell a ketchup popsicle to a woman in white gloves? He’s a world-class vibe-reader, his superstitious nature and love of numerology, passion, + emotion = a dope ass art collector, why removing pieces from your collection is more important than adding to, how to build a collection as a broke boy, sure, Pierce Brosnan is an artist too, some of his favorite NFTs through the years, and how his seconds-short appearance on Emily in Paris (s01) made more of an impact than anything else in his decades-long career.
