Phil Hansen

Phil Hansen is an internationally recognized multimedia artist, speaker, author, and innovator at the forefront of bringing art to a wider audience. Hansen works at the intersection of traditional art, electronic media, offbeat materials, and interactive experiences. He is most widely known for his meta­art, videos documenting the creation and destruction process, showing millions that art is action not just result. His work has been showcased in features on the Discovery Channel, Good Morning America, The Rachael Ray Show, Last Call with Carson Daly, Glamour, and many more. His work is sought-after by clients including the Grammy Awards, Disney, Skype, Mazda, and the Rockefeller Foundation.

Hansen’s artistic journey nearly came to an end when a tremor developed in his drawing hand. In exploring new ways to create art, he discovered that by embracing his shake, limitations could become the passageway to creativity. His inspirational story was first shared on the TED stage, and then shared around the world including on PBS, BBC, and CCTV. Now, Hansen's ability to draw parallels to the business setting has won him followers among industry and business leaders, leading to invitations to speak at the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates, the Million Dollar Round Table, and Adobe MAX Creativity Conference.

In addition to his advocating for advancing art education, Hansen is the author of Tattoo a Banana, a guide to exploring creativity through art with everyday materials. He is also the founder of Goodbye-Art Academy, which provides high-quality and free art education videos to teachers and students everywhere.
