The Long Game Part 3: Painting in the Dark

A brand new video essay for 2016! "Painting in the Dark: The Struggle for Art in A World Obsessed with Popularity" is the long overdue follow up to the Long Game Parts 1 & 2 which looked at the creative ups and downs of Leonardo da Vinci. In this new video essay, I've taken a look at the forgotten difficult years of another celebrated artist and wondered what it means for creative people working today.
