On life, joy and solitude.

Talent is nurtured in solitude. Every kind of creative work demands isolation. Art thrives in the lonely hours. Solitude brings out the most kooky, thrilling, and richly faceted interior worlds inside us. Being alone helps us see the unfamiliar beauty and appreciate the spontaneous joys that are usually lost in the roar. These artworks remind us to stay with our solitude for awhile, they make us want to run up a hill by ourselves, to daydream, unwind and refresh. Be alone, that’s when ideas flow.

Cheers to solitude!

“I think you’re going to love this!”

The best conversations end with “I think you’re going to love this!”

Today, the combination of art and technology enables the most emotions. Art enhances the haze of intrigue that adds enchantment and marvel to life.

— Henry Miller

You have to be odd to be number one.

We have a special knack for the weird and the wonderful, the inexplicable and the absurd. Our favorite artworks have the perfect mix of odd and whimsical. In most facets of life we need to conform to maintain order, that’s why the spark of weirdness has such tremendous impact — it’s the flaws and flamboyance that adds thrill and flavor. Strangeness is the nerve of the internet, and art online is the labyrinth for independent thinking, idiosyncratic beauty and long term allegiances.

Don’t be normal. Only the weird, the mad, the unusual people are significant enough to be remembered. (more…)
