Very few people knew that Jim Carrey did artwork until the online release of the mini-documentary, Jim Carrey: I Needed Color. The film highlights his change from a charismatic, goofy actor to a more reserved and reflective artist.
Carrey has been refining his skills over the past 6 years. Last week, he threw his first Gallery Showcase entitled “Sunshower” in Las Vegas, Nevada. You can characterize his artwork as generally bright and colorful, with a modern pop art type of aesthetic.
“You can tell what I love by the color of the paintings,” he says in the video, posted to Vimeo. “You can tell my inner life by the darkness in some of them and you can tell what I want from the brightness in some of them.”
Even Cleveland Cavelier’s Lebron James tweeted about it:

Check out the Badass Bruce Lee painting below that Jim Carrey displayed in his studio. (Unfortunately, it didn’t make an appearance at the Sunshower Gallery, but we can dig it.)
Is this going to be the new Jim Carrey from here on out? After his odd E interview, it makes us wonder.
