HOW DO YOU DEFINE ART?

´´ Every Famous Artist was once an Amateur ``

Art is often considered the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way that appeals to the senses or emotions. It encompasses a diverse range of human activities, creations and ways of expression, including music, literature, film, sculpture and paintings.

PIET MONDRIAN AND HIS PAINTINGS

´´ To approach the spiritual in art, one will make as little use as possible of reality, because reality is opposed to the spiritual.``

- Piet Mondrian

A painter who has carved a unique niche for himself on the global platform matching the likes of other celebrity painters. He is possibly best known for being one of the founders of the De Stijl, which incorporated an art movement that worked around abstract works, and the new art forms that were being introduced to the world in the early 20th century.

The Full Story

PAINTBOKS

Let me tell you a short story.


I am a qualified chef with over 40 years catering experience. I am also an amateur artist and I own a website called Paintboks. 


Paintboks is my baby and I created it back in 2012 primarily as a hobby/pastime with the goal of showing and selling my amateur paintings. I was very lucky and my artwork was very popular. But unfortunately paintings didn’t pay the rent so I  also worked full time in the Danish catering industry as a Chef. 


On the 13th December 2018 my life was dramatically changed due to an accident at work. I accidentally sliced my wrist open on my right hand. I severed five tendons to my fingers and thumb, severed my pulse artery and severed the Median nerve which is the major nerve in your hand. My hand was operated on twice over three days and an amazing team of hospital staff saved it. 


Almost eight months of sick-leave have gone by since the accident and my hand is looking almost normal. But it’s not normal! or rather it doesn’t function as it used to before the accident. 

I suffer from chronic nerve pain in my fingers, thumb and palm. Because of this I’m on a daily dose of various pain killers, including my new best friend ‘Morphine ‘. 


I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to paint again and as far as my work as a chef ,, well I don’t know the answer to that right now. 

But, all in all things have gone ok. I can’t complain with how things are working out. I am very lucky to have a very good employer that has given me the time and freedom to get better. 


I have also felt very blessed for what I have. I am truly grateful to those people that have done so much for me. The doctors, nursing staff, and co-workers etc... and  lastly I know that I could not have coped with this without the abundance love from my family and friends and my ‘one and only’ T’


So without sounding corny, I decided to try and ‘pay-it-forward’... and I could do that with my redundant website Paintboks!


So, I re-invented my baby Paintboks... and started ‘paying-it-forward’...


It’s now a Web Magazine for the arts and struggling artists... it’s free and welcomes donations and supports the ‘pay-it-forward’ concept... 



Best regards, Patrick Barrow
