ACADEMIC ARTIST

«The INK (Nimon Lokaj)» by Venus  
music by Kevin MacLeod
Art & Music


Throughout history of mankind, artists and composers regardless of their origin and nationality have been emotionally forced
to get inspired by the very heart of mankind’s suffering! - Surrealism is one of the methods used both in art and literature as a
creative potential of the unconscious mind. It is philosophical and images portrayed are as the word itself - surreal (unusual,
strange, nightmarish, unearthly).

The INK original artworks you see in this video are surreal. They’re drawings of amazingly crossed lines under extreme
patience, skill and life time experience created by the ingenious Kosovar European academic artist Nimon Lokaj, my dad and
my art instructor. “When looking at Earth and seeing this light-dark-phenomenon, there seems to be more to the universe than
random, chaotic, purposeless, moving energy," he says, “Positive energy blended with reason brings forth a creative person -
an Artist. But where does this creative energy of the Artist phenomenon come from?" he questions: "Is it a Privilege, Divinity or
Provision!"

Regardless, his amazing ink art of depth and shadowing, brings forth emotional stories and awareness of human suffering in
the world we live in, occupations, nightmare, reaction, sacrifice, the concept of freedom never being free, and the survival of
human spirit.

Accompanied by Kevin MacLeod’s music “suitable for fights evil, or a calm day at the park... in hell” as the composer
categorizes it, the impact of this INK art is mind-blowing – out of this world! Together, they genuinely bring Aristotle’s quote to
my mind: “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.”

Significant it is to know that: The only path away from darkness is toward the Light…

Through this brilliant artist and composer, through this slow lead-in and gradual building to an intense ink and musical climax,
I sense Revelation
“He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent” and I think to myself: O thou Man!
