An artist’s artist

“Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.”Theodore Rosevelt

I think this one should be my motto, because I’m a strange mix between a realist and a dreamer. I’ve always wanted an extraordinary life, I’ve always felt that I was born to be great at something. I dream big, okay? I want to be the hero of my own life’s story, and I want it all: the good and the bad, and the great, and I never, ever give up. But I also try to keep my feet on the ground, to take it easy… step by step. To figure out exactly what foot I should place first.

To me, there are only two things worth fighting for in this life: art and love. And there are no rules of engagement. It’s all about hope, about passion, about the fight that resides inside our souls, about the spaces that rest between people… about the million different ways those spaces magically disappear.

I’m an artist because I love. And to paraphrase Van Gogh, there’s nothing more artistic than to love.

I love art in all its forms, and I’ve met many, many great artists. And, in a way, their art has captured my soul in such a strange manner, that it made their dream become mine. And I tried to help me. Perhaps I tried too much. But this isn’t really going to stop me. Because I believe in the fact that art is the only one capable of offering us complete freedom. From the tyranny of others, and from ourselves.

And what on this Earth is more worth fighting for than freedom?

I’ve always dreamed of helping other artists in any way possible. I’ve always wanted to inspire them, to offer them hope… hope that one day they’ll figure out why is that they chose to become artists. That one day it’ll all make sense somehow.

Odd thing is that if you keep your eyes on the stars you’ll stumble and fall. Many, many times. But you might also find yourself in a place no one else even knew existed.

I want to make irevuo the kind of website that’ll give indie artists a starting point. I want to be able to showcase great art; art that would otherwise go unnoticed in this vast ocean of information we call the web. I want to be able to launch a quarterly digital magazine, as we’ve done a while ago[you can download it here]. I’d like to launch an app for iPhones and iPads. Stuff like that.

But I can’t do this on my own. I need your help to make it happen.

And this help… can come in many forms. Following the blog, clicking on the like button, spreading the word about irevuo. It all matters.

But the most important part to making it all happen is, sadly, technology. My computer is failing me, and it’s not nearly powerful enough for all the software that I’d have to use. That’s why you can purchase ad space in the future issue of the magazine (September 2014) and donate any amount you see fit here.

  1. Nice piece, I think Roosevelt’s quote is a good motto to live by. It reminds me of a quote by Oscar Wilde (paraphrased): “We’re all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”

  2. I’ve just started a blog focusing on passion, and what makes people tick. This article exactly embodies passion and I can clearly see that you are passionate about art and love. I would love to feature you maybe just simply reblog this post if that’s okay? I am definitely going to follow your blog. Thanks for sharing!

  3. All that I can do is hit the share button and I did that, so that maybe if someone else who can monetarily support you sees the article may be then. If what you want to do is inspire people, then rest assured that you’re already doing a good job at that it can only get better as you put more effort into it. I most sincerely hope that you’ll be able to be great and to live an extraordinary life because I think that you deserve it.

  4. I love this, thank you for writing this piece. I can really relate with the first paragraph and I want to wish you success with irevuo and I find your passion extremely inspiring. Good luck!
