become reminded of why you create

there is something larger than what we can exactly grasp tethering us to one-another through art.

our project is an act to thoughtfully define the mysteries we face when consuming things favorably created by man. in example a common witness to creativity is transmutation of anxiety and fear into light.

thankful we are for this ability without it many would feel overwhelmed and lost.

we passionately believe that art saves lives.

we have countless examples of someones favorite musician writing into words and sounds letters of encouragement helping to relate in times of trouble or dread. sometimes these forms of expression keeps the listener going to the next day capable of taking on conflict knowing they are not alone.

often we’re notified how our journey making artwork motivates others to accomplish a variety of ideas and goals.

art is a phenomena that introduces worlds to those who couldn’t see them before.

in 2014 before this brand existed we crossed paths with the band known as Silent Planet.

we were set up with original card stock illustrations selling artwork outside of the venue.

not having any money at the time, we attempted to make our entry fee to see them perform from art sales.

Garrett Russell noticed me and immediately wanted to support my art. i admit, it was very unexpected to me because i was so used to bands having an arrogant rock star mentality. that wasn’t the case whatsoever. not in the slightest.

during the night we experienced immense syncronicities and dejavu. while they performed i channeled a message into an illustration. it was a broken planet, some honey bees, and a script “the meek will inherit the earth”. this imagery was inherently significant to us all.

this phenomena led to my never ending journey of understanding these complexities and blossomed my relationship with them. it’s been five years since and the universe continues to bring my artwork to new cities. Silent Planet just so happens to arrive at each one. unplanned.

together we write our story out for others to read.

together we share our passion for art, for it is truly our calling.

as the years pass and pages turn, we unconditionally follow our art inspiring hundreds and thousands in our path.

this is what it means to save a life through art.

passion helps fuel success,

if you don’t love what you do you are doing something wrong. the great part about art is that it’s almost impossible to become tired of it. the only way you could be exhausted of creating is if you’re making too many commitments. while being a creator it’s easy to wear yourself thin wanting to take on the world and share your brilliant idea with everyone.

we try to promote a healthy balance. take steps back and set aside time for yourself. adventure. explore. try a new flavor. ride your bike. take a different route.

the most important thing is to never give up. continue creating and pushing that boulder. you will be surprised where dedication brings you.

you could be facing the line that could bring your career to the next level. save your money though, because it all has a price.

meet Brandon. we just recently became connected through the arts. right now he’s working at Fry and Pie. he really appreciates artwork and has began collecting work of his favorite artists and also having a few of them tattooed on him. we’re very blessed to have made the cut. it means the most that you’re grabbing some illustrations and getting them applied to your flesh. that’s incredible to even think about still to this day. it’s almost unreal. without souls like you, we would not exist.

there’s so much to creating art. we imagine the level of skill and dedication helps confirm where you place your investments and collection. thanks for connecting. we cannot wait to build a lasting relationship as time goes on. let’s ride bikes together.

we live to create.

a morning with Sanath

greetings and hello. we started our day by sharing our morning with Sanath. we planned our rendezvous at the Louis Armstrong park for a few photos to showcase our latest addition of color with the FIG WEAVER design. together we enjoyed a cup of coffee talking about the upbringing of cvlt aesthetics and how this project began. Sanath is a brilliant soul. our journey began crossing paths briefly while we were set up selling art in our usual spot on Decatur street. he actually reminded us this was how we met. we reconnected via email when he was inquiring about artwork about a week or so ago.

this morning we discussed how terrifying it could be embarking on journeys we were unfamiliar with. usually it’s in the most uncomfortable situations we find bliss along with our initial reason for seeking this higher plane. we talked about how our paths in life often meet at repeating crossroads, and the ultimate challenge is to overcome the emotion that steers this vessel.

we went on about how some things are inevitable -but they are lessons and it’s our duty to grow from them.

Sanath introduced himself at our #ARTCVLT gathering last Wednesday to promptly obtain a tee shirt, meet the artists, and enjoy the show. thinking about his sincere support for our project makes us really warm inside. it returns that childlike essence of a school crush, because deep down- we’re in love with everyone who goes out of their way to support this vision.

together we make this a reality.

Sanath is a martial artist and software developer. we give you our blessings as you bestow them unto us. we hope the leap to come to New Orleans was the right one. so far you have been enjoying it, now that our paths have crossed we hope to see more of you.

thank you for your time.

if you are on our mailing list please check your mailbox for “contact@cvltaesthetics.com” or “cvlt aesthetics” and add us to your contacts. right now our emails are going to spam and it’s making it harder to communicate we feel.

we live to create.

the mint green color for FIG WEAVER is one of the exclusive selections. we have vintage black available to the public currently. contact us if you want to claim a limited edition tee.

you have to be a little comfortable with your mortality

we are falling apart and decomposing each and everyday. every day we make the choice to contribute to the world or take from it- for the world will tirelessly take from you. almost every second. as we create, we are destroyed. we highly advise to not look in this as becoming a fearmongering concept. sometimes we need to be reminded of our mortality in order to achieve a certain level of success. we are gifted each waking day to impact the world in some shape or form. it’s what you do with your time here that matters the most. this project is aimed to bring this mindset to light- there’s a certain level of destruction that is healthy, and there is a certain level of existential dread that can bring about the most dramatic changes in your life for the better.

route to warped

it’s never really too bad sleeping in parking lots. you’re just going to be hot for a while, maybe toss and turn a bit. either way you’re still alive and living for the sake of adventure. we had plans to see our brothers perform in Silent Planet at the vans warped tour. we’re in Houston, TX. they’ve come a long way- i wonder how they deal with the heat if any pals are in the Houston Texas area, it would be nice to gather around today-tomorrow.

explore.

there are only 33

tonight at Cafe Istanbul we will be celebrating the legendary film, AKIRA. this visually scoring work of ART has inspired the aesthetics and culture behind this brand. a lot of influence came from viewing this movie while growing up. we hope that you enjoy it in the same light. maybe you can celebrate the various elements of the film and see why it’s such a nu cvlt classic.

upon entry for the night, you will have the option to donate $5 or $10+ for entry. if you choose $10 or more you will receive a limited edition signed and numbered illustration by the founder himself. this is the first thing he’s drawn and made public all summer.

view our facebook event page for more details.

we live to create.
