“I found myself looking around at one point, a really bleak winter in New York, and it was just so depressing, and I think I needed colour.”

An interesting 6 minute short documentary video which went viral last year about how actor Jim Carrey discovered the benefits of picking up a paint brush.

“I don’t know what painting teaches me, I know that it just frees me.”

The video features Jim Carrey at his home art studio talking openly about his journey.

“At a time when I was trying to heal a broken heart, I decided to paint”

Since the video has been released Jim Carrey has tweeted his art almost daily. You can see his latest work on Twitter.

Watch the documentary short in full below.

  1. JIM I loved art I recently became partly paralyze from the waist down limiting everything to slow life. But have found art again at 60 years. I am trying to sell my our 2 story home for past two summers. So I can get in a one story I plan on turning a room into a studio to rediscover life. I hear you are doing the same. God bless you I hope you are able to find your creative side in you. Cherié
