About Kurtis Brand

Breathe. Just Breathe.

My name is Kurtis Brand. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to view my page. My work is informed by meditation, a contemplative practice, and the idea that we must do what we can now, to promote a healthy future through the arts. 

I believe we are at a crucial junction in history that will define the survival of this planet and its inhabitants. We must do everything we can to save the earth and to further evolve as human beings into kinder gentler creatures that touch the earth lightly. At this point, the connection to our natural surroundings and the connection to our fellow brothers and sisters on earth must be examined deeply if we are to move forward and live harmoniously. Things seem to be going in the opposite direction and it is up to each and every one of us to rethink our current situation and start to move in a more positive and unified direction. I believe art is a way to do this and I believe contemplative practice and mindfulness practice are ways to help us evolve and unify our increasingly separate and discordant perceptions.

The reason I created this Patreon page is to build a community of artists and supporters that are interested in taking part in a journey towards the promotion of contemplative art, healthy lifestyles, the use of sustainable materials, and the practice of meditation and mindfulness for the betterment of the earth and its inhabitants. What could be more important? We want to elevate and promote small businesses, corporations, galleries, collectors, curators, and organizations that have a conscience and are concerned with making the world a better place to live rather than just chasing a buck.  

If you are getting fed up with greed, environmental destruction, anger, and fear, this is a unique opportunity to bring socially and environmentally minded people together through both the visual and contemplative arts. Thanks for joining, I am so happy you are here!




Goals
$0 of $1,500 per month
$1500/ month would allow me to almost entirely fund my  current art making activities and also allow me to donate 30% to local charities in Guatemala. This money would go to studio expenses, an assistant, materials, travel, and marketing costs. Currently 30% of these funds would go to Habitat for Humanity to help provide homes for survivors of the tragic volcanic eruptions in Guatemala.
