There will always be beauty behind the madness
Salvador Dali, Vincent van Gogh, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Prince and many, many more in the history of art have had a certain degree of madness. Well, what society understands as madness, because they are not prepared to understand how it is that so many beautiful works of art are generated. They are capable of marveling and admiring everything created by these great artists, but they cannot understand why those men and women touched by something divine behave differently than established by the ties of society. However, for many artists that is the state of the soul in which creativity, inspiration, beauty, high consciousness and what many know as augmented reality that is so fashionable in film works and that offer us a different perspective of what we do every day and that we are not aware of all that is hidden behind those acts. Why do I mention augmented reality in this? Because I think that in the minds of many artists this already existed from time immemorial, but only until today and with the help of all the amazing technological advances, some directors and creatives have been able to show it in video and sound, which is shocking, that's why I add it among all the altered senses that musicians, painters, poets, dancers, writers, directors, even some scientists and all those who have artistic expressions in their work and everyday life have. Art is the word that encloses all the above, having that gift is what generates that supposed madness of some in the eyes of a society that, while appreciating what they do, does not understand and sometimes turns against them. The insanity that has sometimes been a source of mockery and contempt, of persecution and violence, of incomprehension and intolerance. But one thing I'm sure: the world would be much better if we were all a little crazy like all those who have given us masterpieces that will remain for eternity unless those who claim not to be crazy destroy them with their ignorance. It is a primary need of the artist to make those who see and hear understand that behind all that seems strange or different a magical vision of things and an imagination that sometimes leads them to anticipate the time they are living. But, above all, the artist strives to bring people a picture of the moment that the people of his time are going through to create awareness, to point out what in their eyes is wrong, to help them be happy, to share sadness, anguish, to make life more beautiful, to teach how to express oneself to those who are curious or suspect that they also inhabit that madman, but do not know how to let it out. If we call this madness, welcome be Beauty Behind the Madness by The Weeknd.
