Where can artists find inspiration? Can they use the world around them as sparks for their art?

Ideas are everywhere. The key for creatives is how they allow themselves to experience the world, how they open themselves to the inspiration provided by everyday life. 

Using the tradition of the readymade, this episode will help you draw inspiration from the world around you and find art in the most mundane of things. 

In today’s episode, you’ll learn…

  • The Readymade Philosophy.
  • How to Use the World Around You
  • A Creative Exercise for New Ideas


“While inspiration is fantastic, there’s no need to wait for it.”

“One of the things about creative exercises is that sometimes they frigging rock and end up being art, they end up being good enough that you continue working on them.”

“Put yourself in the place to receive ideas, put yourself in a mindset to experience the world around you, and I promise you the ideas will come.”
