is known for his comedy. Yet he might become a household name with his artwork as well.
There is a recent mini-documentary on Jim Carrey making amazing artwork. The mini-documentary is called I Needed Color. The first of the videos are posted on Vimeo. In the shows, the actor is shown working on various projects in his studio space in New York city. The video is directed and produced by David Bushell. You see people being blown away by his artistic talent.
The video has gotten a lot of attention since it first posted (it's racked up 1.5 million views so far). But it exploded in popularity even more on Monday when NBA superstar LeBron James shared it on Twitter and said he wanted to meet with Carrey to talk about his art.
"This is incredible!! I had no idea either. Unbelievable work @JimCarrey! Would love to see some of your work in person someday! Love art," James tweeted.
Carrey explains in the video that when he began "really" painting, he became "obsessed."
