Creating a Colour Storm with Damian Dibben [197]

Apple podcast


Today we welcome international author Damian Dibben to the podcast. He joins Alice to discuss his book The Colour Storm; an artistic thriller, set in Renaissance Venice, but the conversation goes further than that. Yes, the book is a great read – bringing to life the artists of the era and a search for a stunning new pigment, so there is a lot about the power of colour itself… but we also talk about the patterns of a creative practice. What role does luck or choice have? Working across different creative platforms (Damian has been an actor, screenwriter and also still works with his hands creatively alongside the writing) and also touching on managing feedback and taking control of your own creative output.

It’s always great to get an insight into how different creatives work, and where inspirational ideas come from, so I hope this conversation leaves you intrigued to find out more.
