In this episode of Visionary Artists Podcast we interview author Marc Fiszman about his new graphic novel, Coffee. The podcast begins by exploring some of the themes raised in Coffee, including multiple dimensions, absurdity in art and the trickster in folklore. The interview delves into Marc's creative process, the surreal and quirky humour in Coffee, his interest in metaphysics and much more. After a musical interlude, we discuss the dichotomy between materialism and idealism in the context of visionary art and mystical experience. We also hear what's to come on Visionary Artists Podcast, including some information about next week's interview with Allyson Grey. Music from the Correspondents, Younger Brother and Nujabes complement this lively and hyper-dimensional episode.
