Alex Tieghi-Walker on Always Wearing A Hat, Vespas, Growing Your Own Vegetables, and more.
Cool people like cool things, which is why we asked Alex Tieghi-Walker to share a taste of his taste on Perfectly Imperfect.
Alex Tieghi-Walker is a (currently) Los Angeles-based curator and gallerist. In 2020 he founded the folk-craft gallery Tiwa Select that champions self-taught artists who make things by hand using natural materials. They believe in showing artists' work in environments that feel relatable, dignified and human, rather than white-box art spaces. His bohemian 1960s home acts as a great entry to the ethos Tiwa Select represents, but I’d also urge you to browse their Instagram to get a better idea. Alex is actually moving to NYC this Friday and driving cross country with his dog Ivo as we speak. He’s opening a new gallery and cultural space in Nolita which’ll have an opening show by Megumi Shauna Arai at the end of October! Lucky for us, Alex is here to tell us what he’s been into.
Without further ado
