This week, we’re delving back into the celeb world to look at another fascinating fact. You might be familiar with Jim Carrey from such hits as The Mask, Dumb and Dumber and Ace Ventura, but what has he been up to recently? The answer was surprising to us.
He’s a painter.
Yes, we could probably stop the blog there but we thought we’d talk a little more about Jim and his exceptional skills. When a celebrity announces that they’re walking on another skill, your mind tends to head toward moments like WWE wrestler Chris Jericho and his band Fozzy or perhaps Keanue Reeves’ band, Dogstar. Is it good they exist? We suppose so, but they don’t really get you as fired up as a Walls of Jericho or…err…another rewatch of Demolition Man of DVD.
The thing that sets Jim Carrey apart – well, Jared Leto seems to have had a decent amount of success with his music career to be fair – is the fact that he can actually paint! You have the star of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind seemingly churning out these masterpieces at will. Okay, that might be hyperbole as the paintings might not be your thing, but you have to admit they are pretty good.
In a six minute documentary which is currently taking the internet by storm, Carrey talks about passions and how he started painting when trying to repair a broken heart. Seemingly needing an outlet for his creativity that was a whole block away from the memories of Dumb and Dumber To and Kick-Ass 2, Carrey turned to art and the results were spectacular.
The clues were always there; Jim Carrey’s website was always a sight to behold, but nobody knew the extend of the man’s talents. He shouldn’t just be booked for comedy films but galleries too! We can see these pieces perhaps taking their place amongst other leading artists of today in the TATE Modern or Saatchi Gallery. It isn’t just paintings either but sculpture as well!
We should really let the video speak for itself. Released three weeks ago without any fanfare, we are thrilled to see just how well the public and the press have taken to it. A unique glimpse at a fascinating individual. Enjoy.
