10 Celebrities You Didn't Know Were Artists Too

Celebrities You Didn't Know Were Artists Too


Did you ever see a movie where your favourite actor just busts out into a dance scene and you were like “Wtf! I didn’t know he could move like that!” Or that actress that’s in every other action movie does a musical and has a surprisingly award worthy singing voice? Well it's not surprising

Self expression can manifest in a variety of creative forms. It isn’t uncommon for an actor to be a clever writer, a musician to be a great dancer, a poet a superb singer.

Heck, most people know me as an artist but my close friends and family know that I can rip it up on the dance floor. I actually danced through out my entire childhood. The truth is many creative people are multi-talented and can show a true passion for many stems of creative expression. Creative genius is within all of us.

" EVERY CHILD IS AN ARTIST, THE PROBLEM IS HOW TO REMAIN

AN ARTIST WHEN HE GROWS UP "

- Pablo Picasso

Here is a great list of professional performers that have found fame on the stage, but have a secret weapon in painting.

Definitely not surprised Jim Carrey found a spot on this list. He just seems like a great big ball of creative energy. Just for kicks, check out this episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee where my favourite comedian Jerry Seinfeld gets one hell of a tour of Jim Carrey’s luxury art studio.
