Travis Hetman is an artist currently living in Denver by way of Minneapolis. Hetman comes from a a family of creative thinkers; his aunts were avid painters, his grandfather was an inventor and entrepreneur, his father followed suit, pursuing a life of creativity and business.
As a result Travis's creative output seems to be almost second nature. By that I mean art is a part of his being, he's not pursuing art, and seems to care very little about being labeled or perceived as an "artist". Hetman's creative output is the way in which he processes thoughts and explores the world around him.
"Throwing The Fight" is a perfect example of how Travis does just that. Hetman recently finished reading a book that challenged the way he saw the world and perhaps his role in it. The body of work that he created was a result of him processing those thoughts, ideas, and philosophies. Breaking down what they meant, how they could be applied and/or even evolved.
