What is Beyond Art? Well, it’s just that. We’re building a community that emerged from a passion for art, but encompasses so much more. We’re exploring topics that power our art– but also make us better humans and help build stronger collectives.
Together we’re exploring the many nuances of NFT photography, making images in general, functioning in our toxic capitalistic economic system as artists trying NOT to commodify our art, what it means to be an NFT collector, celebrating and supporting our fellow art communities and social justice initiatives and so much more.
As a member of Beyond Art, you have access to the private Discord where our community gathers, connects, and grows together. The community is in its infancy, so we’ll evolve the channels and conversations as more people join and their needs are presented. To start, we’ll have working artist-specific channels, private collectors channels, and a curated industry news channel (or 2).
Collectors will receive early access to certain drops, participation in shoot productions, direct access to the artist (me), special access to IRL events and discounts on all print sales, and more perks as the community grows and special needs arise.
Artists will find a safe place to connect, grow, share and evolve together– as artists and as a community. I am a firm believer that we must all show up and place our art into the public sphere without apologies or acceptions. We are at a vital precipice in our human journey and part of our survival will fall upon the artists among us. Those who document, storytell, inspire and bear their souls will help us all evolve. Our society desperately needs the human connections from storytelling, myth creation, and beauty to find an anchor in the chaos we are all facing.
I invite you to join me on this adventure. I don’t know where it will take us or what the journey will look like, but we will have a space to explore all that’s possible when we step Beyond Art.
