IAM has finally moved to their new, physical, studio space on W. 59th Street in the heart of mid-town Manhattan. IAM gathers artists and creative catalysts to wrestle with the deep questions of art, faith and humanity in order to inspire the community to engage the culture that is and create the world that ought to be.
Art has been and will continue to be society’s existential statement, by answering the question, “Why live?” International Arts Movement works as a catalyst in the NYC area and worldwide to inspire people to hope, to engage deeply into the depth of culture, with the hopes of creating a world that ought to be. After all, in order for artistic excellence to pave the way for lasting, enduring humanity, this is what we “ought to be”.
IAM founder and prominent artist Makoto Fujimura’s art is described by art critic Robert Kushner as, “The idea of forging a new kind of art, about hope, healing, redemption, refuge, while maintaining visual sophistication and intellectual integrity is a growing movement, one which finds Fujimura’s work at the vanguard.”
International Arts Movement is an outgrowth of this “forging”, and desires to collaborate with other influences from all walks of life, empowering their work and growth.
