I am an artist because…

Art is an expression of the soul. It speaks from the soul to the soul. It can and should and must change and save the world. When we are all artists the world will be healed. It needs healing.
Art speaks from feeling to feeling. Its purpose is to awaken feeling. In an unfeeling world. This is the sacred task of the artist. To make artists of us all. Whatever our field, whatever our occupation. Yours and mine, Cristian. You cannot be great. Only the truth is great. Give expression to the truth. Open eyes and ears. Awaken joy

There’s a part of me that believes art to be a primordial aspect of the human condition. Art inspires, art is a way of achieving greatness, of building a better world. Art turns strangers into friends. Without art, without artists, we wouldn’t be ourselves anymore.

Because I feel that within the confines of any artistic form of expression, we allow ourselves to wear a mask. The artist hides behind words or paints or brushes. And he feels safe. He can be anyone he wants to be. His freedom is limitless. And he plays this bizarre game of hide and seek with the rest of the world, constantly changing the rules, until he decides – maybe on a mere subconscious level – to  be himself, thinking that people will never find out.
