'When bankers get together for dinner, they discuss art. When artists get together for dinner, they discuss money.'
Authentic art is the treasure we seek
The Poetic Pirates Society is a rebellious troupe of one of one cyber intellectuals, all hand-drawn and painted.
The goal of the society is mutiny, to disrupt the (online) art world, to roam the digital seas. Fearless and uncompromised, just like true poets are meant to be.
The series is based on the travels of artist Alexander Koning who has visited over fifty countries as a videojournalist during the past twenty years. The paintings are playful and colorful but also remind us of the growing pains caused by a human society globalizing at the speed of light.
The poetic Pirates Society advocates the essence of art and its elusive ability to touch the core of our human nature.
DO YOU KNOW WHY POETIC PIRATES ARE SO GREAT?
