Long form conversation with Steven Newman, visual artist and musician. We discuss the role that meditation and yoga as well as psychedelics plays in Steven's creative process. We talk about traditional Eastern art forms such as Thangka painting and some of the differences in those traditions and Western and contemporary approaches to art. Steven studied thangka painting in India as well as Islamic art. We also talk about geometry and how geometrical forms show up in nature as well as in art across different human cultures.
