I found a new path. I learned to UNthink. I learned how to unleash and unlock my mind to find freedom.
In my search for freedom, I was unaware that ‘art’ (actual paintbrushes and paints) would serve as my personal rehab as I began to rebuild from rock bottom. But during this deep search for real answers, I realized the term art had been misused for centuries. What originally began as a term defining the interaction between geniuses and muses eventually was morphed into a hierarchical description of taste and masterpieces.
‘Art’ became a product and ‘artist’ became a career where, like any other job, you could succeed or fail.”
