Contemporary Art that solves problems: Art that makes Money
Art is known to be nice to look at.
Nicely hanging on a wall, nicely fitting in with the remainder of the furniture and nice to impress visitors with. On top of that, Contemporary Art is also meant to be reflective on the times and the world it has been produced in. Nice to look at & nice to reflect on, for a couple of hours on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
A relatively small percentage of Art is also considered as investment opportunity, where prospective buyers expect the selling price one fine day to be higher than what they have tabled for it themselves.
As professional Artist, I wondered. Is this how far I want to reach with my Art? My Art as wall decoration cum investment opportunity (if at all)?
Living in a world & times, which are soaked with problems, I wanted to use my talents to actively contribute in solving the problems of our very times.
As the times we live in are stuffed by an unlimited multitude of problems, it took me careful analysis to establish which problem is the most urgent of all. After deep research, I realized that our times are characterized by an unlimited hunger and hunt for…. Money.
Money is the most essential commodity which humanity longs for. The lack or abundance of Money can be the difference between death and life. Money can almost solve any problem – or at least soften the bad consequences.
In our days, the hunt for Money is setting aside all morals. Wars are fought to acquire it, suicides are committed for the lack of it. And even if a substantial amount has been gathered at any given time, it is never enough. If offered 1 billion USD and the guarantee not to be persecuted, how many people would kill another human being without giving it a second thought? 90%? 99%? 99.99999%?
Meanwhile, the rich get richer, the poor become poorer.
As an Artist, I felt it was time to address this issue and come up with a useful solution. I felt it was time to give humanity what they long for most. Therefore, I developed Artworks which will generate Money for the owner of the same.
My quest to solve the problems of acquiring Money (and solving other problems as well) brought me to study with accomplished traditional African healers (Mganga’s) from the Ukambani area of Kenya, as well as acquiring knowledge from a traditional Siberian healer (Shaman).
I was taught in nurturing the good energies of nature (also popularly called ‘spirits’) while at the same time keeping the evil ones at bay. I learned how to redirect good energies, to magnify them and to project them onto specific goals to be accomplished.
The knowledge I acquired, belongs to the oldest spiritual knowledge of humanity. Thousands and thousands of years before the religions which dominate the world presently, the spiritual knowledge of the traditional healers was used for the betterment of mankind.
When the religions which dominate the world currently were used to establish empires, the local religions and knowledge were an obstacle in the way. The process of wiping out the local religions and thus the knowledge about nature and its energies became a colonial instrument to break the resistance against colonization of the local population. Though, the religions and their knowledge could never be wiped out completely.
Particular in many parts of the world which were colonized by the dominating world powers relatively short ago, like Siberia or Kenya, a lot of traditional knowledge can still be found. Though often looked down upon by the mainstream culture and suppressed by the current government officials, the knowledge can be found and is still in use by huge parts of the population.
Even in a modern city like Nairobi, one can find advertisement signs offering the services of traditional healers all over the city. From the amounts of signs to be found all over Nairobi, one can get a notion of the huge demand for and the importance of the traditional healers.
Therefore, I load my Artworks with my acquired knowledge about the energies which can generate Money. In all Artworks real Money is incorporated which is loaded with Money generating energies. The Money pieces are ordered in energy enhancing patterns, projected on and interfering with energy loaded images of ancient statues depicting the materialization of natural energies into spirits. All energies and spirits in my Artworks are protective to mankind and are shielded off the evil ones by protective signs and materials.
All Artworks are guaranteed to generate Money.
For the People of the Money, here are The Gods of the Money.
