- VISION & MISSION -

Breathe Life Arts and Culture springs from love. The kind of love that is rooted deeply inside the hearts of those who love nature, and believe that the best of our environment should be saved and passed to future generations unchanged and unspoiled. Modern technology has undoubtedly brought about tremendous convenience and urban prosperity, but it has also deterred a harmonious and integrated existence between man and nature. And in the process, we have lost our yearning and pursuit of true beauty. How urban heart and soul can escape the pandemonium of wealth, and regain care and concern for the environment and others are what those with vision and conscience unceasingly strive to achieve.

Art is beyond aesthetic and decorative purposes and should carry a mission of its own. No matter what issues the artworks are attending to, the artists should be true believers themselves. It is with the firmest belief that artists can make a difference in making the earth a better place to live and this mission in using art to promote environment awareness can be endured and passed on.

「生息」的誕生源自愛,這份愛深藏在每一位熱愛大自然的人心中。對他們而言,大自然最原始、最美麗的面貌應該得到保留,不僅為自己,更為了下一代能夠同樣享受到大自然的饋贈。

社會與科技的發展日新月異,為人類帶來便捷生活,營造了城市繁華;但亦阻隔人與自然的融和共容。人類在追求名與利的途中,漸漸遺失了最純粹的真我以及對大自然的嚮往。都市人的心靈如何從金錢的泥淖抽身,重拾對環境和其他人的關懷關心,皆是有遠見、具良知之士,追尋的根源。

藝術作為一個媒介,已經超越美的界限,更能傳達信念與愛。無論藝術家想要通過藝術創作傳遞何種訊息,首要原則是真誠對待自己的本心。當擁有了這顆本心以及對保護大自然的堅定信念,藝術創作則不再停留在一幅幅平面或立體的設計,而是一種精神與信念的傳遞,能令更多人投身環境保護隊伍中來,共同愛護我們的地球,這是我們的責任,亦是送給下一代最美好的禮物。
