Something really strange happened to me yesterday as I walked down Shoreditch High Street in London’s East End. I walked past a guy who at the time I believed to be homeless. I saw he was painting and laying out these amazing images of his dog and felt compelled to stop and take a look.
We got talking and quickly entered the deepest depths of conversation, we spoke about the illuminati, magic and aliens. We continued about spiritual growth, music and how we both believed we are in the midst of a global revolution.
It was actually one of the most thought provoking conversations I have had in a very long time and was a real sobering reality check as to the people who get lost due to a system that does not celebrate (and often represses) creativity.
Anyway it was about halfway into the conversation he started to talk about his art. He told me he was a critically acclaimed artist and that his dog George had saved him from a heroine and crack cocaine addiction. The artist I am speaking about is John Dolan. The good news is he is no longer homeless, but he still likes to hang around Shoreditch with George the dog and paint.
One of the things that amazed me as we spoke for around 2 hours was how few people stopped, it just goes to show that we can easily walk past beauty and more in line with what is culturally idolised “fame” and completely miss it. Below is John’s Ted talk from 2015.
