As I know artist today we are somewhat revered for skills as artist if our paintings are selling for 5 Billion each. Otherwise, how much notice does the work of artist really receive? What is this society all about? Who are they? What value do they add? What do we recognize them for? Yes, not always for selling 5 Billion for fine arts paintings. Artist is the New Utopia. They carry the same definition from a historical reference but today you will see them not only as artist but a society in of itself. No, we are not talking New World Order, we are simply stating the obvious. Leaders, trail blazers, philosophers, musicians, writers, singers, dancers, gammers, programmers, architects, doctors, nurses, athletes, poets and the list goes on into any non-traditional field you can dream of. Having spent over 35 years in computer field one of the things I learned from observation (art skill), was that the guys and gals pumping out some really awesome code had something uniquely in common. Their passion for art. They were either artist or musicians both a form of art. Something, quite frankly that didn’t surprise me. Where do we go from here as artist? I say Society is in for new direction and the term artist will merge with usages such as gifts to indicate a higher skill set. A higher skill set is needed in todays technological advances. Thinkers, dreamers, visionaries and not in the cliche meaning of the word. 2017 I will continue to point out examples of this Society of Artist as they continue to mold the world we live in.
