Never Break Faith is a story about an artist struggling with his authentic persona in a world based on consumerism, fast data, image and status. He chose to be the perfect identity we always see on social media – it’s the artist people want you to be, the people’s artist. He finally realised that it eats him up because he has conflicting images and thoughts about his future being. Then, he decided that he needs to kill the perfect self in order to be his true self, the authentic self. This is the self that is full of scars walking on the path of suffering towards success. He realises that this is his most genuine way to be the artist he always wanted to be. It’s a copy of his true persona parallel to his artist image.
The reason why I’m telling this is because I feel we are losing our authenticity and our unique aesthetics because we are constantly projected with images based on a superior being that does not exist. For me it’s important to be the artist who tells his own personal and spiritual journey, that really has existed. It’s a true being packed in the form of an artist full with substance and context. There is real history inside of me with a story that I feel that I need to tell.
What I want to tell is that even though we are struggling and in pain, it’s okay to show it and talk about it. If you feel lost and have nowhere to latch onto, you need to trust yourself but in order to do that you need be accepting of your pain and suffering. We all have our unique stories but you must find the power to search for it and empower it, and to do that we need role models. I would like to take this opportunity to spread the knowledge I have and currently am learning. It came at the right time, when the majority of the electronic scene is becoming commercialised. And that’s for the better for the industry, but not always for those who want to show a unique and independent story. So where do you draw your lines or where do you break your rules to go your own way? I think this is a never-ending struggle of the artist you want to be. For me, it’s important to hold on to your own morals and never let them slip away. It will be a long road to your success but this long road of suffering will be worthwhile in the future.
