To be modern is to be more than an artist.

Painters like Blue The Great capitalize on social media by creating and sharing work with fans in real-time.

With a four-person crew, we set out to capture a video portrait of Blue at his home, studio and on the streets of LA as he took commissions and ran errands, all while ideating and sourcing the time to create.

The result is an airy glance into the life of a self-managed artist juggling the left and right sides of his brain.
