After I finished perusing through a monumental archive of stock art on the web today, and was meditating/napping, I realized very clearly the Deep power in memetic artwork, especially in today’s social media heavy world.

The artistic expression of ideas and beliefs has become more accessible, elegant, context-rich, and beautiful than at any point in history. The way an artist can unveil such deep story through an image, idea, or song, is unparalleled, the deep subliminal information coded in our emotional response like chords strummed (for better or worse) by a hand outside of ourselves…

Though these images may only be humble representations of truth, mere fingers pointing to the moon, they inspire introspection, creativity, responsibility, and perhaps even action (among many other possibilities) in those looking on.

And even if the effect of the art on said observer isn’t impactful, the creator of said art is forever changed. My study of social evolution tells me that lived experience is the ultimate harbinger of change. When we sense in real time what it feels like to truly Do or Be anything, it sinks to our bones, to our DNA, and through the scientifically-robust theory of “epigenetics”, alters our perception of ourselves forever.

The creation of True Art, especially (but not necessarily) expressing deep emotions or beliefs, is a ride on the razor’s edge of experience, a sacred act directly binding one to transformation.

The role of the visionary artist / meme producer in social evolution has always been, (and is especially today) Paramount. Whether it be through music, painting, performance, or presentations, artists are the vanguards of culture, (and grand Life-affirming ideas are RIPE for expression today)…

So I ask – What kind of art are YOU creating??? How can we help each other??? I’m full on right now…
