There is a deeply rooted spiritual element to the entire process of the manifestation of the work of a visual Artist, who serves as a channel for the actual creation produced. This far supersedes the actual visual Artist herself. Therefore, the purpose of Art is to add to the betterment of mankind in such a way that people evolve from the inside out.
And since ART has the ability to inspire and uplift people in a revolutionary manner, positive Karma is spread throughout the globe.
Manifesting works of Art that explore the realm of spirituality and consciousness, Cryptic, makes it a point to keep the Art at the forefront and focus, even at the sacrifice of his own self-recognition.
In an interview executed by Ink, Cryptik shares, “I make a conscious effort to stay as low-key as possible. Because my art is ‘spiritual’ in nature, I always felt that the work should speak for itself and serve a greater purpose than self-promotion. It’s more important that I get the message out there and I don’t want to get in the way of that. Really, it’s about creating something bigger than myself that anyone can be a part of – the Cryptik Movement.
The main truth revealed in the aforementioned is: the medium (Artist) is not the message (artwork). And because this is the case, Cryptik’s uncanny ability to highlight the product’s separateness from who he is as a being, makes the iconic depiction of deities and spiritual leaders that are birthed from science, math and divine mystery that much more powerful.
And according to Jamie Maleszka (Mass Appeal), it is “By Cryptik’s hand, Eastern philosophical thought and mantras hypnotically merge with the black letter bombing of cholo writing. Therefore, the ancient and the sacred marry in a modern quest—through art—for conscious awakening and awareness.” What an explosive wonder of purpose!!!
So, review the incredible work of Cryptik and allow the below mission to fuel your spirit and awaken your soul to how expansive we are as a collective.
“Our main objective is to challenge people to think of other possibilities and to see a different reality; one that encompasses many ideologies, philosophies, and belief systems in order to help us better understand our place in the universe.”
