The Role of the Artist

“Artists use lies to tell the truth, while politicians use them to cover the truth up.”

I’ve always thought of that as a profound truth. Especially because I first heard it in one of my favorite movies.

You see this in the following video. It is the most fascinating five minutes you’ll spend today.

Amazing, right?

Before you jump on my case for promoting “lie telling,” ask yourself what a parable is. It is a fictional story (never “actually” happened) that portrays a real truth. If I recall, Jesus told a few of them. Jesus was a brilliant artist in so many ways.

How are you artistically telling the truth?

If you are still curious—watch the following video for a behind the scenes on what Marco is doing to pull off his magic.
