Taylor Baldry is an artist, community organizer and large-nosed person.
Baldry studied Visualization at MCAD and after graduation became a designer and animator for a boutique marketing agency. In 2009, Baldry moved to Japan, where he taught English, judged beauty contests, and ate rice. Two years later, Baldry returned to Minneapolis and guided by a need for meaningful conversations in the digital age, he founded the Conversationalist Project. Baldry shares project updates, surprise interviews with his dad, and jpegs on his e-newsletter and is the creator of the Feminine/Masculine Books series — which teaches the gender articles of the Romance languages. Baldry’s current projects include Grown-up Club, which is an event series for wayward adults, the Pangaea Station, which is a quasi-educational art history web series filmed in his bedroom, and the Sunday Service Taylor Baldry Memorial Oatmeal Bar, which is an oatmeal bar. His work has been featured on NPR, the Star Tribune, and the bottom of garbage cans. He lives in Minneapolis with his house plants.
