Living with Art
Benny Or & Cristian Shoemaker's art collecting journey began organically, but they didn't start to consider themselves “collectors" until recently. Through their art-filled home in Brooklyn, they have cultivated an environment that inspires creativity and serves as a regular reminder of the beauty in the world. Join us as we explore the stories, inspirations, and shared vision behind their unique art collection.
In this conversation between friends, Testudo's co-founder and Marc Hajjar caught up to discuss the first artwork he ever purchased and keeping an open mind in the art world.
Kirby Voigtman and John Dennehy founded Testudo from a shared passion of collecting. As kids, the focus was nutcrackers and Simpsons memorabilia. But today, their art-filled Brooklyn apartment showcases a wide array of prints, paintings, sculpture, and more. Watch our interview for some highlights from their collection and a few reasons why they love living with art.
