Authenticity (New Currency)

Authenticity is the new currency

There is art we’ll never see in a museum, nor see for sale in a store.

But it is still art.

Exquisite.

Ordinary.

Generous.

Risky.

Brave.

Art is simply human behavior.

What allows human behavior to cross the line and become art is unique and special.

It’s a generous habit. It’s risking the comfort of predictability. It is created to inspire the creator and any who come in contact.

You can be socially accepted or you can make art.

You can aim for something tangible in return, or you can do it humbly, invisibly.

Artists must abandon the security of fitting in.

The peace and contentment that flow from committing to becoming and remaining authentic is the inherent reward, even though none is sought.
