I've been saving up some art-related posts for a while.
I saved them up because I feel a need to justify their connection to at least one of the core themes of this blog - mindfulness, leadership, or technology.
I'm picking leadership.
OK. Here is goes:
Any artist worthy of the name is a leader. Conventional, follower, and copy-cat aren't labels that get appled to great art. So artists (good ones) lead. They do hard things and they do different things and they take risks.
This is also what leaders do.
If you aren't happy with my justification, then here's an excuse: I like art.
The first post is about a single artist and a single piece of art. The second post is a single artist's work, spanning a lifetime. And the third post is many artists working in collaboration to produce art.
I like art and I did or found or saw this stuff recently.
