The life of an artist is inspired, self sufficient and independent
(unrelated to society).
The direction of attention of an artist is towards mind in order
to be aware of inspiration.
Following inspiration life unfolds free of any influence.
Finally the artist recognizes himself in the work and is happy
and contented. Nothing else will satisfy him.
An artist’s life is an unconventional life. It leads away from the
example of the past.
It struggles painfully against its own conditioning. It appears to
rebel but in reality it is an inspired way of life.
Check out this cool project I found on the new Dropr Artist portfolio site. I love seeing all the new, inventive. creative projects happening across the world.
The #Artwall is a massive wall of canvases which was paint-bombed by a community at a launch event, creating an initial piece “painted” by around 100 people. The wall was then broken down and each of the 28 canvases is now being finished by an artist to their style.
The creative industry is growing faster every year and since many big companies are thinking how to provide internet to developing countries (Google’s Loon project, Facebook’s plan to launch drones etc.) there’s a real chance for currently underprivileged kids to change their future by becoming creative professionals.
