Unknown Artist;All he or she ever wanted was create something genuine because he/she needed to. What he or she forgot to calculate is the smothering embrace of recognition or the absence of it. ……
The additional ‘real’ story to this design; the male nude study is extracted from an original sketch of an unknown Rijks -Academy (Amsterdam) student from1929 from my own modest private art collection.
Unknown Artist; Alles wat hij of zij ooit wilde was iets oprechts maken omdat de intrinsieke behoefte daar was. Wat hij of zij vergat mee te rekenen was de verstikkende omhelzing van succes of het ontbreken daaraan…
Een additioneel ‘echt verhaal over dit ontwerp : de naakte man studie is gebaseerd op een originele schets van een onbekende Rijks Academie Student (Amsterdam), gemaakt in 1929 uit mijn eigen bescheiden kunst collectie.
Nothing beats the strange paradox of the unknown artist. The unknown artist is smartly escaping mass approval and is the best-kept secret or a recommendation for the early adapter. A star is jet to emerge…be aware….There is a true story behind this design… wanna know?
For you we made a nice theme selection of music & film. Enjoy
We presented our new design Non Conformist past week to you. In our blog we let you take a glance of our designers motives. A design can be just pleasing or esthetic, commercial and popular. Created for instant succes….
Maybe money making is less interesting than using all your creative powers and really make an effort to add something fresh to this world. That could be a thought, an idea, an opinion driven by other motives than opportunism and money. Plain and honest statements, they seem rare these days.
One of my ultimate Heroe of non conformism was The Wide Eyed Boy From Free Cloud, David Bowie. When I was a insecure teenager he thaught me, that being different was cool, ultra cool. He made artistic statements and was inimitable. Still, today, almost a year after he died, Ziggy’s Stardust was never more shining in his absents. Still he left a void. The world needs Little Wonders like he was.
We al seek for Saviour Machines, but as the lyrics of the song says, If you please them to much it will control and destroy you……It needs a counter word, an opposing word to sharpen his mind. It needs a Sense Of Doubt.
Day in Day out, we trie so hard to be a part of something bigger but in fact we our selves could be larger than the sum of our coins and the size of our ego. We could be Heroes, just for one day. Doing it the Right way….and Don’t Look Back In Anger
Dear David, we salute you and thank you for all the inspiration!
