Pictorica: Culture creates art; art creates culture!


"If the Titanic Sank Today" was created by Pierre Brignaud. It won third place out of 200 submissions to the visual arts contest for the Montreal-based Just for Laughs comedy festival. Great statement. At least it's not a selfie!

Our arts and artifacts do not just stem from the cultural discourse of our identity narrative, rather they shape it, reinforce it and transmit it to others. An artifact or work of art, in performance and in result, is the open door that lets us see the dynamic of culture embedded in us, brings it/us to life, reveals the directions in which our stories are moving. It is, in fact, a mirror.
