181: Don’t let FOMO hold you back (w/ Dan Lydersen)

Dan Lydersen is a painter who draws influence from a variety of contemporary and historical sources, from the Renaissance to modern cinema, literature, and popular culture.  Both theatrical and satirical, comical and somber, the paintings pose a view of humanity that is steeped in the existential turmoil that lies between materiality and spirituality, where society trudges persistently forward into the future while the human search for meaning and purpose as mortal animals remains unresolved. Full shownotes: In this episode, Dan discusses: -The influence that his mother and theater had on him as a creative person. -His balance between tragedy and comedy that he has found in his paintings. -The lack of authenticity that comes when you are doing things that you think other people want to see rather than what you want to make. -The importance of not being too influenced by your teachers or predecessors. -How you can use older styles to say something
