Artist Decoded by Yoshino

"I started this series as a means for exploration, an exploration of self and an exploration of the perspectives of other artists. This series is an unabridged documentation of conversations between artists. It’s a series dedicated to breaking down the barriers we tend to set up in our own mind. I want to inspire future creatives to have the courage to explore and experiment. This is about making dreams a reality and not about letting our dreams fall to the wayside. My intention is to give my audience a sense of real human connection, something that feels rich and organic. When I was thinking of a title I thought of the word “movement”. In relation to the Renaissance period in art, my goal for this program is to signify a rebirth of consciousness towards the way we look at contemporary art." - Yoshino

Ideas expressed in this episode:

  • Art being able to communicate messages that words can't describe
  • Creating, manifesting, capturing, hunting for... "IT"
  • The podcast highlighting todays "unsung heroes". These artists have the potential to eventually become "cult classics".
  • Our job as an artist is to translate experiences and to share them with the world
  • Different levels of dimensions and consciousness
  • Virtual reality becoming a part of reality
  • Living with love and fear in our lives. Creating a no fear zone
  • Becoming Photo Editor for Vice
  • Conversations becoming artworks within themselves
  • Trying to live within a non-consumerist way of life
  • The art world being a vast sea of hits and misses. Being both deep and shallow.
  • Our relationship with our own truths and universal truths
