I have way more compliments than complaints, but theres always the odd asshole here and there who can't take criticism or even an opinion. When it comes to art, everything should be allowed. You can debate about it. of course. But art should never be discredited, or ignored just because one doesn't understand it. Ever. No matter the content. Any really. Because that's the beauty of art, that's what makes art so special...well, to me at least.
"Many artists use a variety of complicated philosophical words and frases to describe their work. So for any of you reading this, i hope you don't mind if i just cut through the fucking crap, and i'll be who i am. A rather simple and straight to the point guy. Unafraid of what others may think of me or my art."
Simply put...I paint what i see. Things that revolt me. Shit that pisses me off. Things i wish i could change. Everyday situations that are filtered onto wood, canvas, cardboard or any materials i may find useful to paint on. But mostly my work is about honesty. And you can't contain your feelings or be afraid of what others may think if you want to be totally open and honest.
To me, true art is the art that is straight in your face and fully open to any kind of criticism. I don't let ego or creticism get between me or my work. Why should i? Fuck that bitch!
Some people have a diary where they keep all their thoughts and feelings locked and hidden away.You can say that my work is also like a diary, only i use visuals instead of just pen and paper. And i don't lock those thoughts away. I show them to the world. Any subject can turn into a piece of art. A painting, a sculpture, depending of how i feel on any given day. Though in most cases my work is extremely personal, even if not obvious at first glance.
I am not trying to please anyone with my work but myself. And i couldn't care less what anyone fucking thinks about it. As an artist, i feel that there are no rules or barriers that can't be crossed. if those exist in the art world, i sure break them all, every single time. but not necessarily, intentional. I break rules because i'm always shearching for answers. Art gives you that
sometimes. An answer. A sense of inner peace. A sense of purpose.
There's nothing better than getting a coffee ready... while surrounded by art. Put on some good music, feel the smell of paint, and start creating art. I am beyond blessed that i can do this for a living.
I was never afraid to express my feelings. And much less so when it comes to my art, or any art for that matter. I am fearless. Totally! Because art gives me that freedom. The freedom to say anything. And somehow feel free and protected. That's how powerful art is...
One thing i personally notice more often than not... Is that artists are trying to hard at what they do. At the art they create. Trying too hard to be perfect. Adding too much beauty into their work. Too much thinking going on. Trying too hard to please others. And way too many clones. Of course this is just my opinion, it is not an attack on anyone. So leave the fucking offended thing on the side, please. I think that art, it is not meant to be beautiful, in the sense of beauty. Like pretty. Art must be just art. You have something to say, and you just say it. But with visuals. When i paint i never, ever think about what i am doing. About what colours i am gonna use. I'd hate that if i did so... As i am creating a work i rarely think of what i am doing at all. I really don't think, of lines, shapes, colours, nothing. To me it is all about the message i am trying to convey. And i just let it happen naturally.
I just love it when scammers are trying to cheat artists into buying their work, (with no intention to pay of course). But sometimes, they don't expect you to know their game, and what they're up to. The one thing i always say, and they are out as fast as they started the whole thing. Is this: "ASSHOLE I'VE BEEN DOING THIS FOR A LONG FUCKING TIME." And i say no more.Iit works every time. Fucking assholes they think everyone is stupid. Good fun!!! ;)
ART can indeed cost a lot of money, depending from who you buy art from. I understand that. I mean... i also collect art. But the way i see it is very simple... When you buy a car, an iphone, a computer, a good leather jacket, (whatever that may be!) you pay a lot of money also. Right? But with one difference. They are made without soul, and there are millions of copies of the same thing. Only lasts a few years. With art... it's different ... Art is unique. You have the only 1 piece in the world. Made with passion and it lasts forever. You can also learn with art. Think about that when you buy art? And also when you buy crap from a corporation...
Playing safe is the quickest way to fail. It is as simple as that...
I want to clarify that when i paint certain things. Is not always something, I've said, something i believe, or something i agree with. Sometimes my works are just depictions, of something I've heard, something i am questioning, something somebody else is questioning. And in some cases, even words I've heard from someone else's mouth. Something I've seen. Could be something i agree with, but it could also be something i totally disagree with... Just because you make an horror movie... it doesn't mean you believe in ghosts.....
It seems that Facebook is now targeting artists (among other people) for standing up for the content they create. Which i believe is the right thing to do. Why would i take down an image, that in my opinion has nothing to do with racism, or hatred? Just because they say it is...? FUCK THEM! I know what they are trying to do. And they have been doing it for a while now. I was deleted once before from FACEBOOK. Reason!!! hatred! Hatred? can you fucking believe it? Me? A hater?
Really anyone who knows me, knows i am not a hater at all. And certainly my work is anything but hate oriented. I tell you what i think they hate about me and my work! They don't like the fact that i tell it as it fucking is.... I am not politically correct with my words and my imagery, and i never will be. I just cut through the crap and say it. Do it! Isn't that what an artist is suppose to do? Ask questions? Investigate? Make the viewer think? Crazy shit!
Anyway i ask you all to come to this page as often as you can. Support me they way you can, and the way it is possible for you. I will thank you in advance. I will be using this platform more and more. Because you can't trust those cunts at FACEBOOK. it won't be long before they will delete me, yet again, and i will loose contact with you all. Plus i am sick of their fucking stupid rules. Which are made only to protect their bullshit while silencing the beliefs of others. And their work.
FUCK YOU FACEBOOK!!!!!!!
