Podcast – The Universe Articulates Itself ft The Art Hippo

The Art Hippo

Art is the soul of the community,

We are the universe articulating itself. Art can be seen in everything around us, from the spiritual plane right through the physical world. It’s the way we are, the way we talk or say nothing, the style representing us right down to the aesthetics of our phones.

Art, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.

My interpretation of art, or the world around us can be explained with the concept of a Rubik’s Cube. A Rubik’s Cube that is in perpetual motion, trying to solve itself. We all interpret the Cube based on what we can see.

Our role around this cube is to articulate what we see, that makes us paintbrushes, artists in our own right. We shouldn’t be afraid to express ourselves, fail, re-discover, create and evolve the world around us.  

That’s the message I got from speaking with Navneet.

Navneet is a family man who works for CIBC as a project manager. 

When he isn’t doing that he works as an artist. He has been making art for over 10 years now.  Navneet tells us that he just walked into a paint store one day, bought art supplies and started painting, He says his art is about vibrant colours, action, movement. The universe and the spiritual are a huge part of his creations.

Through this interview we talk about artists and messy studios, merchandising strategies, monetization, art exhibits, collaborative art projects we want to work on and spirituality.
