Michaell Magrutsche

Art derived initially from the skill of reproducing the beauty of nature, people or things. Today's technology has arrived at such perfection that it takes little skill to create a perfect image. The invention of the camera started Impressionism. The digital evolution forces artists into self-realization that expresses their inside. Today's artist's purpose is found within art's true value-properties like healing, teaching and discovering alternative art-applications. As it seems, art and creativity might just hold the solutions for humanity.

Michaell Magrutsche is an Austrian-Californian multimedia artist. From painter, musician, to TV producer, author, educator, art politician to artist advocate. Over 90% of working artists live near the poverty level. 3 years ago, Michaell formed the Self-Aware Art Movement that adapts to the evolution of art. The 90 graduates of Michaell's workshops confirm his theories. Art's missing link between skill and history is the understanding of the functions in art, and the most value of art lies in an artist's creative Voice.
