30 Days of Genius: Austin Kleon

Chase Jarvis

Overview

A famous quip commonly attributed to Pablo Picasso says 'lesser artists borrow; great artists steal.' Author, artist, and poet Austin Kleon has taken Picasso's advice to heart, building his career on collaging other artists' ideas to transform their work into something new.

In his 30 Days of Genius series, photographer, author, and CreativeLive co-founder Chase Jarvis interviews some of the most compelling personalities in myriad fields, from arts and culture to sport and business. Austin Kleon's books on creativity have sold over a million copies worldwide, and his speaking engagements have included the likes of TEDx, Google, SXSW, Pixar, and The Economist's Human Potential Summit.

Best known for the book Steal Like an Artist, Kleon discusses the idea of art as theft, maintaining artistic integrity, and how to balance making work with finding an audience. The conversation bridges wisdom and wit with philosophical musings that speak to our time and show us how to create in a world that steals our passion and attention.

Favorite Quote

"The good artist welds his theft into a thing that is completely different and transforms things that already exist into something of his own, it's the ethos of taking things from the culture around you and borrowing bits and pieces."
