More conversations

The Cave of Apelles is a long form conversation about philosophy, myths, and cultural values.

the Host

The kitsch-painter and teacher Jan-Ove Tuv is fascinated by myths and storytelling as a guiding principle for culture. He stresses the notion that painters should be conscious about why they work as they do.

the Studio

Located on the Southern Coast of Norway, a two-hour drive from Oslo.

  • Apelles was asked why he touched and retouched his pictures with so much care, to which he replied:
    "I paint for eternity"
