In this episode of The Living Artist, Preston discusses the importance of replenishing your creativity in our current state of the world. He offers a few art films, both biopics and documentaries, that can help you do just that. With the ongoing pandemic crisis and isolation fatigue, it is important to not only escape from time to time, but to find entertainment that "feeds" our creativity and replenishes the well. The movies discussed in this episode are some of Preston's all-time favorites and are highly re-watchable.
To check out these films for yourself, you can search for Pollock, Basquiat, and Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present.
NOTE: This is an impromptu episode where Preston shares his opinions, recollections, and love for these films. Any inaccuracies are due to the fact that this episode is just that: a recollection of the host's feelings and impressions of each of them.
