Just thought I’d take this opportunity to wish ALL the readers of my blog a very seasonal goodwill and happy and ‘successful’ New Year.
As street artists, every single year is different, we NEVER know what to expect. This is always a time to reflect on what has been and what is yet to come. 2010 has been an exceptional year for us in many respects and there have been many highlights. I/we are truly blessed to be working in the arts, following our dreams and in our own way helping to make the world a better place to live in.
Over the years I have seen MANY intelligent creative souls fall by the wayside….either becoming victims of circumstances or being imprisoned within themselves, like Jacob Marley; bearing the chains and weights of their own realities and misfortune. Seldom does the human spirit have the opportunity to fly, but through art we can soar like birds….a flight of fancy that can take us to places undreamed of.
Consumerism, materialism or any other kind of ‘ism’ can’t compare…..we are talking about beautiful gardens falling from the clouds; like music, dance and poetry that sings to the heart and soul.
Now, some enlightened and sensitive individuals already know what I’m talking about….but there are many among us who have yet to discover the power of art and culture. So yes, in 2011 we shall be going ‘once more into the breach’ taking art to the masses on the streets of Great Britain and beyond.
Who knows what the future holds or even where we’ll end up, but one thing is certain, we’ll do our best to be better than before…..let’s make this journey the best we can!!!
Happy New Year/Love and Peace xx
