Shepard Fairey on capitalism, selling out, and what makes great art – a wonderful addition to our ongoing archive of notable interviews.

To open yourself up to being creative and learning, John Cleese says you need the following:

1. Space: You cannot be under the usual pressures of daily life, this means making a quiet space for yourself away from all these.

2. Time: It’s not enough to create space, you need to set aside a specific period of time (a specific start time and end time).

3. Time: Give your mind as long as possible to come up with something original.

4. Confidence: The fear of making a mistake stops your creative juices. To play you must experiment. You are either free to play or you are not. You’ve got to risk something.

5. Humor: Cleese believes solemnity only serves pomposity (the bane of all creativity and problem solving).
