Reclaiming Creativity: Independent Art and Music

In today’s globalized and corporate world, truly independent artistic expression is becoming harder to find with each passing day. With this in mind, this website represents a tribute to independent art and music all over the world and the many talented people who make it possible.

This site aims to provide a clearinghouse for all things related to authentic artistic expression. It also strives to draw its readers’ attention to the many independent artistic and musical scenes that can still be found in countries across the globe.

The Visual Arts

Roughly half of this site is devoted exclusively to modern visual artists who managed to remain untainted by corporate messaging or political propaganda. Here, interested readers can view work by established masters (such as Cy Twombly and Gerhard Richter) and up-and-coming new artists (such as Geoff Uglow and Angie Jones).

Visitors to this site can also read insightful reviews, written by experts, of the latest contemporary art exhibitions to be found in many of the world’s most prominent galleries.

Independent Music

But this site is about more than just the visual arts. Artistically inclined readers will also find a bevy of information about the fascinating world of independent music.

For example, readers can keep up-to-date about upcoming concerts and album releases by their favorite independent musicians. They can also broaden their horizons by learning about and listening to groundbreaking musicians from other parts of the world, including South America, Asia, and sub-Saharan Africa.
