“Millions of people never analyze themselves. Mentally they are mechanical products of the factory of their environment, preoccupied with breakfast, lunch, and dinner, working and sleeping, and going here and there to be entertained. They don’t know what or why they are seeking, nor why they never realize complete happiness and lasting satisfaction. By evading self-analysis, people go on being robots, conditioned by their environment. True self-analysis is the greatest art of progress.” ~ Paramahansa Yogananda
Animal Rights Art is a project that combines my love for art, expression, information and creativity with something that I care deeply about - helping animals and the environment.
I believe that most problems in the world come from the fact that most people don't think and don't pay attention to important things around them. They don't think for themselves and they don't like stepping out of the norm - even when they know the norm isn't right. Most people will blindly follow the crowd, obey, consume, trust the mainstream media and big corporations... without questioning anything. Without stopping for a moment to think - about everything and everyone around us.
I believe it's necessary to make people think, to sparkle a debate, and to make a change. To make them interested and passionate about things that really matter in life. And those things are not materialistic.
Through photography, performances, paintings, writings and other forms of expression and activism, my goal is to make people think about the subjects of my work - about the reality and the way we treat others around us, about the awful but also the beautiful things in life that surround us, to which we mostly aren't paying attention.
It's important to see both sides of life - without knowing the truth, which can sometimes be awful, how will we change?
And without seeing the beauty, we won't know how beautiful it can be once we make a change for the better - once we start living in harmony with everything and everyone around us.
