Dan Levy

We meet all-round LEGEND, Dan Levy, the Emmy award winning producer, writer, director, actor and art collector!! We discuss his love of art, living with art and collecting, growing up in Canada, The Group of Seven (Canadian landscape painters from 1920s-30s), his collaborations with Jonathan Anderson/Loewe, his love of work #DavidWojnarowicz’s art & @PPOWGallery & @Visual_Aids charity, and his brand new art-inspired movie Good Grief out now on Netflix in which an artist (Dan) grieves the loss of his famous writer husband (Luke Evans) then takes his two best friends on a trip to Paris, where they unpack messy secrets and hard truths.

We explore what it was like to play the role of a painter but also to collaborate with a real world artist Kris Knight @KrisKnight who was commissioned by Dan to make the paintings within/prominently featured at the end of the film… in MARGATE!!!! Plus the time he bought a Schitt’s Creek related watercolour painting on Instagram made by a super fan, the artist Anna Brindley!!! We discuss the artwork of Patrick Carroll @PatCar, and share the love for our mutual friend @EmmaLouiseCorrin (who portrays a determined performance artist in Good Grief!)
