Aaron Coleman will be displaying his art at The Downtown Art Annual at the Kansas City Power and Light District May 18 – 20, 2012.
Mission Statement by artist:
“This work represents my official breakaway from the path that I had been indoctrinated to follow. This linear path was shattered into a web of possibilities during the economic collapse of 2008. I received a pink slip, and I felt free for the first time in my life. I began cultivating my own ideas and developing the proper environment for creativity. Some rewiring occurred. I trust my own instincts now, and look towards the future with a fearless audacity. This creative energy cannot be diluted into schedules and profit margins. I am a bona fide stay up all night, exhilarated paint flinging, creative maniac. You can’t cage this soul! So I say thank you Mr. Goldman and Mr. Sachs, Freddie, Fannie, and Sallie, and the late Lehman brothers; thank you for forging the hammer that shattered my predictable path, and reminding who I am as a human being. I hope this set of work can be an inspiration to the viewer to follow their own passions in life; enjoy the ride.”
