4.10 - Art & Enlightenment with Chris Dyer (Psychedelic Painter)

Chris Dyer is a visionary painter, skateboarder, psychedelic adventurer & art teacher who travels the globe hosting workshops, exploring sacred sites, and live-painting at festivals and other events. We got some time to chat while he was taking a break from his marathon journeys and kicking it at home with some friends. We talked about developing into a professional artist, how Jesus stopped Chris from getting enlightenment but saved his art career, and this conversation was totally good vibes all around!
