As an artist, when I look around Kickstarter all I see are the creators, where are the backers? I’ve been an artist long enough to know that art is about who pays for it. How can important people be satisfied helping others without being recognized themselves? The powerful and wealthy patron should be celebrated the way they have been in the past, in grand portraits commissioned and hung on the walls of museums and galleries.
Reveal your inner essence!
The portrait has existed as an art tradition for centuries. A well-executed portrait expresses the inner essence of a person. Portraits have primarily memorialized the rich and the powerful as important records of status. For artists they have represented subsistence as paid commissions and an opportunity to demonstrate the latest techniques and technologies for artistic expression.
I want to reveal your true inner essence in your very own 21st century augmented reality portrait.
As a Famous New Media Artist I have access to the latest techniques and technology, everything necessary for you to truly express yourself is at my fingertips. I’ve been making myself look amazing in augmented reality self portraits for over 10 years and I’ve decided it’s time to help others look as great as I do.
And because I’m a Famous New Media Artist that shows his work in galleries and museums around the world, your portrait will immediately be recognized as an important work of art, part of an edition of work that will increase in value over time. Every eligible portrait will also be exhibited in a solo exhibition at Pari Nadimi Gallery in Toronto, Canada April 4th – May 4th 2013. In fact there will be no show without your help! Against my gallery’s advice, I have decided to risk everything and put you in control of the success of the show. These portraits couldn’t possibly be more important.
