Most of Ian’s work involves painting buildings which he paints in a lively vibrant way. When we previously interviewed Ian we were speaking to him after the show and he mentioned his interest in art and mental health. With everything that is going on at the moment with the Corona Virus lockdown, we thought this was the perfect time to get him back to share his knowledge.
The Five Strands of Mental Health
In this podcast, Ian talks about the five strands to mental health and how they relate to art:
- Being active
- Giving back
- Taking notice
At the moment, as we record the podcast most of the country is in lockdown for the Corona Virus Pandemic so it’s difficult to go outside and urban sketch. However, Ian also has alternative suggestions to how you can still use art to help your mental health. He has adapted from painting buildings and streets all over the world to concentrate on painting interiors of his house and garden.
