Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein was a German theoretical physicist.

Quote 1: The Most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. 

People want to know what it is. The mysterious. They want to know everything about it. They compare it with facts and things they already know. It is the same with Art. Art is something related to real things and impressions but it is something new created.

 

Quote 2: True Art is characterized by an irresistible urge in the creative artist.

That means that artists can not stop theirselfes to create art. It is deep in their personality to be creative.

 

Kollegah

Kollegah is a German Rapper.

Quote 1: Who is german rap? I will be the best german rapper and everybody knows that. (Kollegah, 2005)

It just means that he wants to be the best.

 

Quote 2: With rap i can show everyone my lifestyle. If you don’t know me, you can listen to my music and you will Know me.

That means that he tells things and Stories about his life in the songs. He doesnt want to explain all the things again and again so he said in an interview that people just have to listen to the music.

 

MY PERSONAL STATEMENT TO ART:

Everything that is created by a person is art. Everybody is creative no matter if they say they are or not. I can not explain art. Everything i can say is art is creating something.

 

Dimebag Darrell & Pablo Picasso

“Music drives you. It wakes you up, it gets you pumped. And, at the end of the day, the correct tune will chill you down.”

-Dimebag Darrell

What he is saying in this quote is that this and all other forms of art can drive your daily life, it can motivate you, and it can attune to your emotions; and Dimebag uses his art to inspire these emotions in others.

 

“Musicians tend to get bored playing the same thing over and over, so I think it’s natural to experiment.”

-Dimebag Darrell

Dimebag talks about how it’s too common for artists to just follow the status quo of other artists, and not go outside the parameters of what’s popular. Dimebag wasn’t afraid to experiment, and greatly shows us by this one quote alone.

“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls”

-Pablo Picasso

Pablo believed art should be much more than a pastime, he believed it should be a way to express ourselves and even get a break from the harsh realities of life. On top of this, I also believe this quote means art can help transform our lives from what we perceive as boring into whatever we want it to be.

 

“Art is the elimination of the unnecessary”

 

-Pablo Picasso

In this quote, Pablo Picasso is saying that there is no such thing as unnecessary in art. In the art that he did, he believed everything he did was extraordinarily pertinent, no matter if it were on purpose or accident. This is why people say “there are no wrong answers” in art, because in art, when we eliminate all things unnecessary, nothing is wrong.

To me, art is a way to express who you are spiritually, mentally, and physically. Artists that I look up to believe this as well, and people like Dimebag Darrell used his amazing guitar skills to create what he perceived as art; and we all have different perceptions of art like, just as Pablo Picasso said. Art is a beauty that cannot be judged or discriminated against, because it is unique to each person that creates it, art is a truly important form of expression, and has been since the day it was first  created; and I do believe it will continue to be forever.

  25. Artist statement- Art is created by soul and compassion from the heart. It is used as a way to escape or spread a certain mood upon somebody. Art is a form of happiness and serves as a get-away. Art can be expressed through music or paintings or movies.

  36. Kanye west feels like he is the one that is tasked with taking the impossible and making it possible.
  37. “My greatest power…I’m not a billionaire. I may not be the richest person on the planet. I might not be the most attractive guy. I might be the most liked, but, I right now, because of ‘New Slaves’, and because of the position I’ve always taken, have the most powerful voice by a mile. By a mile. And I’m gonna use that…I’ve got a trillion dollars worth of voice!”
  38. He wants to make a difference in the world by using his widespread influence on others for the good and development of society
  39. Artist statement- The music and movie industry are synonymous in the fact that they do their profession for their own personal gain, and not for the fame. Sure the fame and money is a good plus, but it isn’t the main reason.

Robin Williams, Lady Gaga, Paul Walker, George RR. Martin, Dr. Seuss and Will Smith

Robin Williams

“You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it”

He is trying to say in this quote is that everybody have a little bit of madness and you can still use it for a purpose. That madness can give you creativity and good things out of it.

“Time is the best teacher, but unfortunately it kills all of its students.”

The second quote from Robin Williams tells that you learn new things over time, but at some point in your life the times runs out. When I was little I used to think that the time would never run out, but unfortunately it has to. We can’t help the fact that time will run out at some point.

Lady Gaga

“I’m not perfect, I just think imperfections are beautiful.” This quote from Lady Gaga tells me that just because you are not perfect doesn’t mean that your are not beautiful in every way possible. http://www.quotesgram.com

“You will never find what your looking for in love, if you don’t love yourself.” In this quote she was trying to say that if you never love yourself you will never be in a healthy relationship.

Artistic Statement

To me, art is a way to express your feelings. Both Robin Williams and Lady Gaga did that by their acting and music. Art can be expressed in different ways like, theater, drawing,  comedy, or music. Art can be fun, depressing, exciting, and confusing but I love it. The art that’s for me manly is theater and singing.

Paul Walker

“If one day speed kills me do not cry because i was smiling”

I can reflect to the first quote  because it explains how little things can be so important. There are certain things that make people happy and when you have those things life is amazing. Little things matter whether its music or paintings all these things can make a huge difference.

“If you put good will out there it’s amazing what can be accomplished”

When you try your hardest for what you want there is a high chance you will accomplish it. i believe this quote shows that Paul wanted to make people happy no matter what happened he would try his hardest to make people happy,  his work and his spare time was all dedicated to making people happy. All of his foundations that help people. These things made him happy so by making movies he was just trying to make people happy.

George RR Martin

“A reader lives a thousand lives before they die, the man who never reads lives only once”

George RR Martin’s quote means a lot to me because it is so true. Books are a form of art and by reading them you are experiencing a world and an imagination that the author has created. Reading is like an escape and by escaping we can explore these worlds that if written correctly can be just as vivid as the one we live in.

“Every flight begins with a fall”

This quote is like a poem its so small yet it tells a huge story. this quote is saying that you need to learn from your mistakes and have them to make you a better person. When we make mistakes and we fall down this allows us to be better

Artistic statement –  I believe that art is a form of expressing your emotions. the artist puts there emotions into a piece of art for you to feel. Art makes the viewers have emotions too and it is up to you to figure out what exactly art makes you feel.

dr-suess-google-search

Dr. Seuss

The first quote i pick from him is  “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened”. He is trying to say that you get upset when you look at the past like it gone and you get upset, but you really should just look at it and be happy that it happened and not dwell on the past.

The second quote i picked is “ Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”. Hes saying that you should be you no matter what people think. You should do or say what you want and if people don’t like you or dislike you then they shouldn’t matter to you. If people don’t care how you act and how you talk and stuff them they should matter to you because they are not going to judge you like others.

Will smith

The first quote from Will Smith is “For me, there is nothing more valuable than how people feel in a movie theater about a movie”. He cares for the people who watching his creations. He care if they like the movie so he can work on how to make movies in the future better.

The second quote is “There is no reasons for plan B because it distracts you from plan A”. He saying that you shouldn’t doubt yourself. You will succeed in the first plan if  you’re not thinking on what you should do when your plans fail.

Artistic Statement-

Dr. Seuss and Will Smith are amazing people when it comes to art. Although they expressed themselves in very different ways, they had one objective in particular which was to make people happy and to entertain. With Dr. Seuss his way was by writing books and movies, and with Will Smith it was with Music and acting. These artists are my Inspiration in life and someday i would like to make an impact on the world just like they did.

 Misha Collins

I choose Misha Collins. Misha Collins is an actor, he’s well known for being on the 11 year running show, Supernatural.”misha-collins

“Be kind to yourself so you can be happy enough to be kind to the world”

This quote is amazing because people are bringing themselves down each day and try to give kindness to others and the world, and how are they supposed to do that when they are not happy? It can drive a person to get hurt and not a healthy state.  This relates to theatre because don’t try to entertain people if yo yourself don’t like what your doing. 

 

“We are only bound to the limits of our imagination” 

This quote I choose shows that you can. Doubt is a normal thing to have but it’s also not positive thing to have. If you have an idea you got to go for it because if you don’t you can never said that you tried. This relates to theatre because it does not matter how crazy or hard an idea sounds tell it and it has a high possibility of being accomplished

 

Shane koyczan

I choose Shane Koyczan. Shane wrote a poem and it became a project called “To this day..” It’s a very well known poem that came out in 2014. The poem is about  anti-bullying

shane-koyczan-2012“You are an artist. Whether it is with food or building robots, you will know your medium the instant you realize how in love you are with what it brings out of you .” 

This quote is from a poem he wrote called “How to be a person.” This quote shows the art in whatever you do, if its from playing the guitar to singing, to making people smile, as long as you love doing it, that’s all it takes to be an artist. This relates to theatre because if you don’t love what theater is you probably won’t have fun and you won’t enjoy yourself.

“Like an avalanche, we are strongest when we let go. Like a flower, we are most beautiful when we open up.”

This quote is from one of his poems. This quote tells you that your amazing on the inside and there is no need hiding that. Be who you are because, when everyone sees what you love do to or love to be, it can bring an amazing character out of you. This relates to theatre because when we open up to be our self’s in theater you wont be able to show people what you can bring out of yourself.

 

My quote

“Don’t fear what others think, because in the long run, you will be more happy than people who bring people down by judgment because they can’t see happiness within themselves.”

Being insecure is really hard to get over but as long as you try life fears will eventually subsides and you will be much much happier in life.  This relates to theatre because people might make fun of you because your up on stage acting, and that may be silly to some people, so all you have to do is learn how to be yourself.

Philosopher: William Shakespeare

Quote: “Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.”

Reflection: i think that this quote is important because i think that it is true and its saying dont be afraid of anybody else just because what they do. You should do your own thing and be your own person you can do just about anything that anybody else can. He also states that some are born with greatness and some have to work a little more harder.

Quote: “Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.”

Reflection: Even though some people dont think like this i think that no matter what you should do your own thing and be happy with the work you do and not worry about what others say about you.

Quote: “Be humble be hungry and always be the hardest worker in the room.”

Reflection: I think that this quote relates to art because you should want more for yourself and work hard then anybody else to do what you want and strive for what you want this relates to art because you should not worry about others and do your best

Quote: “Wake up determined go to  bed satisfied”

Reflection: I think this quote means alot because everything that comes your way dont wait to get it done because you will have to do it anyways so just do it when told to so at night you can sleep better art has value in many ways

Image result for the rockPersonal Reflection: I think that art is something that everybody use daily without them even knowing, i love music i love movies and art will only get better throughout the years so everybody should get involved in art.
