53. Ronald Paredes: Rediscovering creativity Access to Inspiration

    • Self-Improvement

Sue Stockdale talks to Ronald Paredes a Latin-American artist, graphic designer, and podcaster from Caracas, Venezuela about we can rediscover creativity within us. Born and raised in a family of painters and designers, he has always been in contact with graphic arts and visual communication and found himself shifting his professional life between his three passions: art, graphic design, and psychology.

With over 20 of experience in the creative industry, he continually balances his personal projects as a visual artist with his work in the advertising industry. Parallel to his work as a graphic designer and his artistic activities he started conducting studies and research into creativity and its connections with psychology, neuroscience, and creative processes to rediscover our natural creative capacities. He uses this information to produce and host a podcast called The Creativity Roots.

Key Quotes:

‘I'm originally from Caracas, Venezuela. I was born there, in a family of artists and designers’

‘What I tell people is - if you're capable of understanding a joke or making a joke, you are being creative’

‘I found out that when you start developing a language, you start losing creativity. There is a connection that when you start developing critical thinking- you start developing this fear of judgment’.

‘Creativity is an innate, human capacity. Every single person is creative.’

‘Creative confidence is when you discover that you have the ability to do something and that it makes you feel good about yourself. It opens a door to a world of possibilities, and then you feel free to explore’.

‘I live by the principle that I don't care what other people think - don't be, scared of being seen. Because that's very important’.
