“Art with Purpose”, “Activism merging with boundless imagination of Art”
There are many different definitions about the meaning of the word, ‘Artivism’. However, I personally believe art is a wonderful communication tool. For me, it speaks better and more than words, because of its unique creative force and its power to communicate and connect with people. I announced that what I do is a part of the act because I would like to speak for what I love— endangered cultures and animals.
My Artivism started out of LOVE, love of indigenous Australian culture and its animals.
It was in 2017, after travelling for almost 5 years. I spent lots of time in remote places. The people I had spent the time with planted the love of different remote cultures in me. As the feeling of love grew bigger every day, I felt more sensitive about how those unique tribes and traditions are endangered by modern lifestyle.
Back then I was in Australia working at a private primary school. I was deeply in love with Australian indigenous cultures but the school was not teaching much about the land and its beautiful culture. So I started reading about them to talk about it in the class. Then, later on, I decided to ‘study’ more closely and deeply.
One day, as fate would have it, one of my music busker friends recommended me to draw outside and try out. And I did. I drew about ‘the original Australian’ culture, I did many of them. Additionally, I talked to people, especially with children about those inspiring stories that I studied about.
From ever since it has evolved. The busking act, idea and concept, inspiration and so on. What I am most grateful about is that I can contribute my skills and imagination to the world for its good.
