The spirit of working for the younger generation
The term "artist" has a very broad definition that is not constrained by any one criteria. Not simply art is involved. An artist is somebody who creates something. Fragrance artists are people who make perfumes.
Cake bakers are considered culinary artisans. Any person, regardless of age or the nature of their work, can be considered an artist. A person's labor produces a global language known as the language of art. A literal definition of language is "a language without boundaries." When we work, whether touched or not, we can communicate a wide range of ideas with interpretations in various variables.
We unintentionally promote nationalism from where we originate in this universal language. When we refer to a country as a whole, we always mean the entire country. Right now, until we leave Indonesia, we won't refer to ourselves as Indonesians. Everyone, in my opinion, has an equal opportunity to express themselves creatively, the younger generation included. The Atreyu Moniaga Project, which focuses on emerging artists, was founded in part because of this. Of course, working with young artists has its difficulties. The majority of them believe they don't have enough inventory to exhibit their work.
Convincing them that their abilities are genuinely sufficient to continue is a task in and of itself. This provision will be supported over time by an increase in artistic endeavors. I persisted in trying to persuade them of their creative prowess, though.
In my opinion, young children still don't receive the same level of respect as adults my age or elder artists. They still explore a lot and are free to express themselves because there is no accountability for their self-image. Because we are of a prior generation, we occasionally have a tendency to be more passive in our approach to problems. Since I can still see the fire in these young artists' eyes, taking care of them is a personal objective of mine. They are more daring to try to show themselves because they aren't concerned about losing.
Perhaps some of us feel that because young people are still developing their identities, dealing with them will be challenging. But in my opinion, a person's identity is fluid. We constantly alter in response to our surroundings, circumstances, and historical conditions. We might adopt a new persona later. Our character and personality will be considerably impacted by changes in interest and the addition of references. primarily produced works of art. This does not imply that the artists are less open to change or that they no longer live their beliefs because they are afraid of appearing unauthentic.
They learn from me to constantly return to reality. Our staff frequently invites them to design displays that might not draw many people. Then let them investigate why it isn't attracting customers. My goal is for them to understand what it's like to succeed and fail, so they won't always expect to succeed. They generated ideas during the process, and we frequently engaged in group discussions. I frequently arouse their emotions by bringing up a situation that might worry them.
Later, they'll be more inspired to produce intriguing and distinctive works. In addition, we offer books, conversations, and knowledgeable people who can be invited to contribute ideas to help spark inspiration and fresh approaches to work.
Identity in a person is fluid. Depending on the circumstances, events, and environments we encounter over time, we will always change
We are also really enthusiastic about Unknown Asia, an art exhibition in Japan that features young Indonesian artists, as it will allow individuals who I believe can represent Indonesia to showcase their talents. This occasion, in my opinion, has the potential to boost young people's self-assurance. My sincere wish is that one day kids will be able to understand how people from all cultural backgrounds and creative viewpoints appreciate their work. They might believe that their work is sufficient for our country, but perhaps not for other nations. Therefore, it will be very interesting when they get home and start a conversation to edit and review their work.
For them to sketch out their future professions as artists, of course, this is tremendously helpful. In addition, I hope that their participation in this event will encourage other young artists. The backgrounds of the youngsters that are part of the Atreyu Moniaga Project are not particularly noteworthy. It follows that everyone can perform beyond their capabilities if individuals who are "ordinary" can be picked to present their work. You don't have to be a nobody to gain international recognition. Simple steps can be used to start anything.
