Daily Dose Pick: The Creative Lives


Video-rich website The Creative Lives documents the work, experiences, and observations of the people behind the contemporary art of a generation.

Each Monday, the site unveils a feature on a new artist, some of whom double as art dealers and curators. There’s always a short film, supplemented by Super 8 outtakes, press clippings, exhibition views, the artists’ websites, and more. Like a tech-savvy update on Vasari’s 16th-century biographical tract Lives of the Artists, this material comes straight from the source.

Watch all the Creative Lives films with extra features, visit the site’s Vimeo page, read the mission statement, and check out some of Creative Lives producer G. Lewis Heslet’s personal filmmaking.
