If customers can’t find it, it doesn’t exist. That is why the clarity of an artistic expression, the unique artist's Voice is so important.
Seven years ago, I received an art grant for finding a new way of art education, to see art on another level and start a new discourse.
I created the "Self-Aware Artist" movement Self-aware artists are artists that created with a new art consciousness that focuses on the artist’s creative voice (Voice,) Higher Aesthetics and the Essence of Art (EoA) with its Functions.
I discovered art has been misunderstood on a fundamental level. By art existing in the economic system, we distorted its essential properties and reduced art mostly to bad money-making propositions or higher forms of entertainment.
Essence of Art (EoA), is the source of all creative endeavors. It is an energy system that drives creation. The EoA does not have an investment in who, where and when it is used. EoA belongs to all/universe. It has
no investment in fame and economy.
EoA is deeply connected to all humans. This is where everyone pulls from when finding any solutions like art, or even manipulations for good or bad. In other words, EoA is Art’s operating system and music, theater, visual arts etc. are similar to the various applications.
The EoA has not been consciously updated for centuries because the art community was not at all conscious of it.
The Essence of Art incorporates the Functions of Art that attract attention, engage the audience with Heightened Aesthetics and give expression to the
Art in its various disciplines is the most intimate with EoA because it uses creativity for the joy of creativity’s sake.
EoA is found in certain patterns and functions that creatives use consciously or unconsciously to navigate themselves through the creative process.
The Art Community must Accept their
Responsibility to Guarantee a
Fair Value of Art.
Artists are the ones that ensure that all 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.
Self-Aware Artists, some gallerists and few in the art education are aware of the necessity of an new art consciousness and their responsibility to implement it in our society.

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 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.
