So what is actually the meaning of the pieces of artworks that I create?
That’s a question that you might ask yourself when you see my art, because when you see it, you just see some cool surrealistic edit that seems deep, but you are wondering what does it mean exactly?
Well these edits that I do mean something to me, because I made them mean something to me. That’s the point. The point is that I created something that only I understand and whether or not I decide to disclose the meaning of it, that’s the beginning of purpose for me. This is something that I got inspired by a group called “Twenty One Pilots”. Most of you may have heard of it, because they got quite popular with their single “Stressed out” and they seem just like an ordinary pop-rock band, but they are actually more than that.
The story goes a few years back when I was trying to figure out what their logo means, because I found out that every little detail about this band has its special meaning. So I stumbled upon an interview with them and I found out that the logo has to do with their song “Kitchen Sink”.
“The whole concept of that song is that I feel that humans are always struggling all the time when it comes to purpose, trying to figure out their purpose is, what purpose even is, what’s the point, justifying your own existence. A lot of kids and people my age struggle with “what’s the point,” and with the logo, what it really means is it’s an encouragement. When someone asks me what the logo means to me, the logo means something to me because I made it mean something to me. That’s the point. The point is that I created something that only I understand and whether or not I decide to disclose the meaning of it, that’s the beginning of purpose for me. The meaning of purpose for me, is by creating something, if it be by writing lyrics, painting a picture, by expressing yourself through art if it’s photography or music or theater, or whatever it is. It doesn’t have to be artistic, but if you create something and only you know the meaning of it, that’s the beginning of purpose for you. When you’re in the room by yourself trying to decide whether to stay alive, you can tell yourself “I should probably stay alive because I’m the only one who knows the meaning of that thing,” so the logo is an encouragement for people to create. That’s what it means.”
