Archan Nair is a self- taught visual artist, illustrator and Digital Artist, specialising in mixed media, illustration, and digital art based out of Berlin, Germany. His visual expressions are part of a journey which is really influenced by the mysteries of our existence and how every action, emotion, and our interconnectedness in a universal scale sets of a chain of reactions.. which we experience from the micro to the macro scale.
Formerly a fashion major and entrepreneur, Archan started painting in 2006 at the age of 24 and made the shift as an independent artist in 2007 with his cultural roots from India. Since then he has embarked on an exhilarating and inspirational journey, collaborating with various companies and individuals such as Nike, RedBull, Canon, Infiniti, Sony etc.

Archan’s passion and love for the creative process and expressing himself has opened a whole new journey, where he is exploring the beautiful essence of life.
In this episode we talk about art as the ability to channel from the Source, the creative process as a surrender to presence, how Archan found his unique style, and when you reach a point in the life journey when you stop looking only inward and start giving back.
I hope this episode blasts open your mindhole.
