Past to Present: Thoughts on Artists, Works & NFTs

From inspiration to perception, creation to appreciation. NFTs are the next step in the evolution of our world’s creatives. What does the past tell us and remind us when it comes to artists and our present day. The artist’s of our generation have new canvases both physical and digital. They create & inspire, expose and define who we are. Their creations are used as a way for individual self identification. Their work becomes us and life mimics art. Take a minute and enjoy voices from the past and how their voices are still applicable to the present day.

“Everything you can imagine is real.”
Pablo Picasso

“Creativity takes courage.”
Henri Matisse

“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.”
Émile Zola

“Nature is a haunted house--but Art--is a house that tries to be haunted.”
Emily Dickinson

“Art is the proper task of life.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

"The fact that not every man is an artist, but only a few, and that not everyone is capable of comprehending or appreciating a work of art, is not a valid argument against the importance of art in people's lives."
Buehler, Barrow, and Mountford, The Art of the South Sea Islands 1962

"The more the art dominated my life and my house, the more the house became a home."
Burt Reynolds

“If we, citizens, do not support our artists, then we sacrifice our imagination on the altar of crude reality and we end up believing in nothing and having worthless dreams.”
Yann Martel
