The Self-Aware Artist Movement
After receiving an art grant for finding a new way of art education had to explore art on another level. I created the "Self-Aware Artist" movement in Laguna Beach in 2014.
With the help of some courageous artists who have since proven the importance of being self-aware, we started a new discourse about art and its functions.
We ask three questions. Why are we Artists? Why do we do the art we do? How do we do it (actually bring our art into reality?)
Self-Aware Artists create with a new art consciousness. This starts with separating the limitless art system, which wants nothing more than being created and exposed, from the ever dependent economic system which dictates our societal values.
Other key-focuses are 1. Voice (the artist’s creative voice) 2. Higher Aesthetics and 3. Essence of Art (EoA) with its Functions.
The Essence of Art (EoA) is the Art/Creative System observed without the Economic System. It is the source of all creative endeavors.
EoA is the energy system that drives creation. All this limitless system requires is to be created and exposed.
The EoA is deeply connected to all humans. This is that "human muscle" the everyone uses when any kind of solution is needed.
The EoA can be used for everything, even manipulations for good or bad. The EoA is feely accessible to all humans.
EoA is Art’s operating system where music, theater, visual arts etc. are similar to various applications.
Because the art community was not at all conscious of it, the EoA has not been updated for centuries .
The EoA does not have an investment in who, where and when it is used. It does not require likes, fame or success.
The Functions of Art help Art's interface, the human, hone any creation.
The Art Community must Accept their
Responsibility to Guarantee a
Fair Value of Art.
Artists are the ones that ensure that all of art’s, tangible and intangible, values are understood and communicated to art lovers in its entirety.
Only through spreading this awareness can art claim its importance as part of our Human Potential.

Picasso's famous Voice
Voice: When you interact with art, it can make you realize there is a complementary spark in you. If you touch this spark with your talent or through your Voice you feel this divinity.
Every time you focus on that spark through your Voice you realize it and you know that there is a truth and a rightness at play.
When this divine energy is activated, your authenticity is understood by the audience through your creative Voice.
The artist’s Voice or Creative Voice is the result of exposing the author’s essence mixed with the EoA.
The Voice acts as the interface from EoA to the artist and reaches across to the audience. The purer (more refined) this mixture is like with Andy Warhol or Frank Sinatra, the stronger and more effective and recognizable is the artist.
Heightened Aesthetics [ɛsˈteːtɪk] is more than just appreciating aesthetics.
In our search for aesthetics, we usually become aware of our commonly understood
aesthetic patterns that have evolved over
generations of people living with art.
Heightened Aesthetics allow every more expensive expressions which help grow curiosity that engages audiences.
Heightened Aesthetics gauge the connections between beauty in form and color. We look for additional understanding
in order to discover new aesthetic patterns as a result. Therein where we recognize the newest order via shapes and colors from art and nature.
What at first seemed to be beautiful random chaos, makes more and more sense (like every other science.)
Those interested in art’s power keep asking, why is this appealing? In order to appreciate the power of aesthetics, the feeling must be explained and understandable.
This analysis, with its verbal and written
communication helps to deepen our understanding of aesthetics in general.
Becoming aware of aesthetics, this visceral
nurturing of our existence, is its own, never
ending reward. -Michaell.
These are real testimonials about my alternative art-educational work: Self-Aware Artist Alexandria Allan about The Smart of Art book:
What an extraordinary piece of information and your stimulating insights. I did not know it would be soooo extensive. I thought that it was to be just your take on the philosophy, essence of art and economics of art, but you have written a tome on all that art includes ...thank you for sharing the wealth of your knowledge.
