The Renaissance was a period of rebirth, intellectuals geniuses, and masterful artists, sculptors, and literary giants. A time when the poor were the poorest and the rich were the richest. Much innovation, industrialization, and intelligence was brought into the world, defining point in Europe’s history.
In the present day life of the average American, there is a surprisingly small and ever decreasing portion of the population that earnestly strives to create, to imagine, and to invoke originality. Mainstream music, art, architecture, literature, all strain to be new and old school at once, a conundrum within itself. There is nothing wrong with this. But as for me, I find the rebirthing of the Renaissance period to be attractive to an artist’s eye.
