Phil Hansen

Artist, Author, Speaker and Innovator

Phil Hansen is an internationally recognized multimedia artist, speaker, author and innovator – at the forefront of bringing art to a wider audience. He is most widely known for his meta-art, videos that document the creation process (sometimes even through destruction), showing millions that art is action, not just result. Phil’s artistic journey nearly came to an end when a tremor developed in his drawing hand. In exploring new ways to create art, he discovered that by embracing his shake, limitations could become the passageway to creativity.

Phil’s ability to draw parallels to the business setting has won him followers among industry and business leaders, leading to invitations to speak at the TED 2013 Conference, Adobe MAX Creativity Conference, World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates and the Million Dollar Round Table. He’s also the author of Tattoo a Banana, a guide to exploring creativity through art with everyday materials, and the founder of Goodbye-Art Academy, providing high quality and free art education videos to teachers and students everywhere.
